A Bigger, Better, Brighter Future

Memory Treatment Centers was established to identify, prevent and treat all causes of cognitive decline in a friendly and patient centered approach.

What Is a Neurocognitive Specialist?

A Neurocognitive Specialist is a medical professional who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of all types of cognitive disorders including neurodegenerative diseases, that lead to cognitive impairment and dementia.
Neurodegenerative disorders are diseases that cause the progressive degeneration and death of nerve cells in the brain, leading to a range of neurological symptoms such as memory loss and dementia, loss of ability to communicate with others, and loss of the ability to function independently.
Conditions we treat: 
  • Alzheimer’s Disease 
  • Vascular Dementia 
  • Lewy Body Dementia 
  • Mild Cognitive Impairment
  • Frontotemporal Dementia 
  • Mixed Dementia 

When Should I Get My Memory Tested?

Schedule a visit with our care team if you or a loved one are:

  • Forgetting names or appointments.
  • Misplacing items such as keys or wallets.
  • Asking the same questions repeatedly.
  • Having difficulty with routine tasks.
  • Having difficulty remembering words.
  • Mild cognitive impairment (MCI)
  • Frontotemporal dementia
  • Mixed dementia

These symptoms can be early signs of Alzheimer’s Disease or other types of Dementia. The sooner they are treated, the better the outcome.

What does cognitive impairment look like?

Cognitive impairment is represented by changes in speech, memory, and motor skills that do not necessarily affect a person’s ability to go about their everyday lives. However, the changes are serious enough that you or your loved ones may have noticed a difference.

These symptoms can be early signs of Alzheimer’s Disease or other types of Dementia. The sooner we identify and provide treatment, the better the outcome.

Our experience was excellent. We appreciate Dr. Plante's personable and respectful treatment. We learned so much from him about my husband's condition that was omitted by so many doctors who treated him in the past. We left the office more knowledgeable and feeling grateful and hopeful.We look forward to our association with Dr. Plante.

Dr McCarren and April evaluated my husband and ordered tests that were necessary to get to the bottom of his issues. They explained different options and treatments in great detail. They are so compassionate about their mission that we know we are in the right place.The infusion nurses Leslie and Izzy make you comfortable in their private infusion suites with their years of experience in IV administration. Explaining the medicines and process.No doubt the whole staff are understanding, welcoming and caring.

Memory Care Center is on the top of the list of medical facilities I have experienced. They staff are friendly, the environment is very clean. As for a physician I have to recommend Dr. Plante hands down compared to any physician I have ever experienced. He actually listens unlike many physicians who say “I have fifteen minutes for you today”. Good staff, good environment and a great Dr.. All the best you could ask for.

I'm so grateful to have this wonderful medical team taking care of me. They are so professional, yet personal. I fully trust April Stowers to get to the bottom of what is going on. She is so thorough. Her thoughtful and kind personality puts me at ease. I would recommend Memory Treatment Center to everyone who is dealing with neurological issues.

As many doctors offices I have been to, I have never been to such a nice doctors office in my life!! WOW!! From the decor to the staff, it was off the charts!! The lady at the front desk was super sweet, she complimented me a few times and now I want to visit everyday just to get told I’m pretty!! Dr. Giles explained everything very thoroughly and gave me a peace of mind with my current situation. I feel like I’m in good hands , with very knowledgeable AND caring staff and doctors. Such a refreshing feeling when you find a great doctor, they’re so hard to find nowadays!! I wasn’t having a very good day but surprisingly after my visit, I feel a little more at ease!

Today was my first appointment and all I can say is Wow! The staff was amazing! Helen checked me in and she made me feel so welcomed. I felt so at home, it didn’t feel like a doctors appointment it felt like I was visiting friends! Dr. Giles answered all my questions and even wrote down the details of what we discussed. Best doctor visit I’ve had. Thank you Memory treatment centers of Jacksonville, beaches location!

I've never had any Dr. listen and ask questions the way she did. The course of treatment was not based on how many test they could do and how many new pills she could subscribe. She sounds very knowledgeable and I have the highest of hopes, she can help me figure out why I'm having memory problems and how we can fix the problem. Everyone I came in contact with were, profession, compassionate and respectful. It was a pleasure and I am happy to travel 40 minutes for a visit. Unfortunately I can't remember my Drs name but, she's the best.

The staff here are so kind and compassionate. Dr. Giles honestly seems to care about his patients. I never felt rushed, and he takes the time to listen to you. He explains things where you can understand what is going on. It is so nice to be treated like a person and not a number. Dr Giles medical assistant Helen is soooo sweet. She is amazing and puts you at ease. She, like Dr Giles, is so caring and compassionate. I feel blessed to have found Dr Giles and his staff. I highly recommend Memory treatment centers of Jacksonville.

Wonderful staff! Professional and friendly. I have been going there for almost a year now for injections. The place is roomy, clean, comfortable and has a warm vibe. My nurse, Maria, is an excellent source for questions, friendly and does an great job with my injections. The receptionist is always warm, welcoming and competent. I live out of town, so my drive is a bit long. However, I don't mind as the visits are always pleasant ones.

Appointment set quickly. Great experience with everyone including Doctor, he seems very knowledgeable and speaks in terms you can understand, here gave me instructions for testing got it done and quick response on tests. Pleasant experience, would highly recommend.

Staff is AWESOME & the office is extremely nice. Dr. Giles takes plenty of time to listen, and explains everything with detail. They were very prepared for my visit. I didnt even have to bring in disc's. They were able to log into the facility where I had my scans, and Dr. Giles reviewed them. He also took the time to go through the scans with me, and point out everything he needed to.

I cannot say enough about the level of service these doctors offer. They were very thorough and understanding and spent a lot of time going over everything with us. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone experiencing any type of memory impairment.

The whole process is seamless. As soon as you walk in you’re greeted by Kelly at the front desk who is so kind and helpful. Then, Angela the nurse was thorough with her check in before seeing Dr Mannel and then I waited maybe 2 minutes before seeing the neurologist and he is very informed with the latest medications and treatments for migraines. The whole appointment took maybe an hour with zero wait times and it was a breath of fresh air. Definitely different from your typically doctor experience. Would recommend!

I saw Dr Giles for my migraines at the last place he worked and would 10 out of 10 recommend him to anyone. I would also absolutely follow him to this new office! He took time finding out my history and helping me find something that worked for me as well as explaining all my options. He is an excellent care provider.
