My Father has been diagnosed with Alzheimers by a Geriatric Doctor after he had a brain scan and various tests. He takes one Aricept per day. He's been seeing this doctor for about a year or so and I go to the appointments with my both my parents. I am not keen on the Doctor, his communication skills are not great and it wasn't until I actually asked the doctor directly, when my dad wasn't in the room, whether he has Alzheimers, that's when I got a formal diagnosis. Before then this had not been mentioned to anyone including my Mother. I found that to be strange and unsettling. Is there a specialist in Alzheimers? We're based in London and can pay for a private consultation if necessary, but I'm not sure who to take my dad to. Perhaps the doctor we have is fine, I just want some reassurance and would like seek further advice from a doctor who specialises in Alzheimers.
