Brookwood Clinic seeks to provide the best possible mind-body approach to good health, by providing the following services:


Birmingham Neuropsychology, LLC

Dr. Richard Azrin, Ph.D., Neuropsychologist and Licensed Clinical Psychologist 

Dr. cheryl@123 Millsaps, Ph.D., Neuropsychologist and Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Neuropsychological Evaluations: We specialize in evaluations for problems with cognition, memory, brain damage, head injury, tumor, stroke and other cerebrovascular disorders, epilepsy, M.S., Alzheimer's, delirium, autoimmune disorders, and toxic exposure.  Competency, functional abilities / level of independence, and disability referral questions are common. 

Legal Evaluations: Birmingham Neuropsychology, LLC offers a wide variety of assessments for all of your legal needs. Our trained and friendly staff perform hundreds of assessments per year, including testing for cognitive deficits resulting from head injury, dementia, TIA/stroke, seizure, multiple sclerosis, encephalopathy, toxic exposure, or brain tumor. We also assess for all major psychiatric disorders, including depression, anxiety, and attention deficit disorder. Our staff is trained to assess underlying causes for disability and workerís compensation claims, as well as detect any possible malingering on the part of the client.  Our clinic is well-known in the community as a leading resource for competency assessments. We can detect dementia, Alzheimerís disease, and other memory deficits that may affect a personís competency to drive, handle his or her own finances, make decisions regarding medical care, and live independently. As you well know, competency is a leading factor in a personís ability to legally enter into a contract or create or amend a will.

Gastrointestinal Psychological evaluations and treatmentWe assess and treat the array of emotional and behavioral issues that are often found to be related to gastrointestinal complaints, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Studies show that a high prevalence of lifetime psychiatric illness has been found in people with functional intestinal disorders, and some of these functional syndromes are often found in some patients with psychiatric illness. These psychiatric issues may include, but are not limited to: anxiety, depression, hostility, posttraumatic stress disorder, and family and life stressors.

Chronic Pain evaluation and treatment:  We assess patients with chronic pain issues for psychological factors that may be exacerbating pain.  We then help patients better cope with pain through individual and group psychotherapy and psychiatric medication management.

Gastric Bypass / Lap Band / Gastric Sleeve Bariatric Surgery pre-surgical psychological evaluations and treatment: We assess and treat patients undergoing bariatric procedures, such as gastric bypass or lap band surgery.  Psychological assessment of patients undergoing this procedure is crucial, as many patients have undiagnosed psychopathology in this particular population.  Most surgeons require psychological evaluation and possible treatment, as the success of the procedure may be improved with this additional component to the entire surgical plan.
