Dr. David Perry is a neurologist who cares for patients with neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease and frontotemporal dementia. He also sees patients with other conditions that cause cognitive impairment.
Perry's research centers on understanding behavioral changes in dementia, particularly those related to reward and motivation. By linking these behavioral changes to specific brain abnormalities, he seeks to improve diagnostic accuracy.
After earning his medical degree at the Georgetown University School of Medicine, Perry completed a residency in neurology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He then completed a fellowship in behavioral neurology at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center.
Perry belongs to the American Academy of Neurology.
