Neuropsychological Testing, Psychological Testing & Educational Testing
Dr. Gieseke has been performing psychological evaluations since 1987, however with the increased demand for testing, she started our testing clinic in 2016 to increase our capacity to provide needed evaluations. In our clinic, Dr. Gieseke supervises testing technicians, doctoral interns and testing technician interns. We provide excellent comprehensive neuropsychological, psychological, and educational evaluations. In addition to psychological and neuropsychological evaluations, we also offer Educational Testing for reading, math and written language.
** Please note that Educational Testing for reading, math and written language is not covered by any health insurances, as it is not deemed medically necessary by insurance companies. Please see fees listed below. **
