Dr. Hilary Glazer is a neurologist at Memorial Neuroscience Institute, specializing in memory, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and the prevention of cognitive decline with age. She leads a Memory Care team that provides patients and their families with the support, services and tools they need to slow the progression of memory loss and help them live life to the fullest.
Dr. Glazer became passionate about helping families going through health challenges after watching her mother care for her father during his battle with brain cancer. While her mother struggled with little support from his healthcare providers, she was inspired by a new approach to care she saw during her medical training: a compassionate, patient- and family-centered multidisciplinary team – a model that she brings with her to Memorial.
Due to her personal experience, Dr. Glazer knows the stress families face when a family member is worried about memory loss, experiences the loss of independence, or changing of family roles that comes from cognitive impairment. She works closely with patients and their families to understand their personal goals, prepare for challenges, and implement person-centered treatment plans that enable each patient to achieve their highest potential.
She also helps patients with mild memory changes, attention or focus issues, and creates multidisciplinary plans for patients interested in preventing memory loss.
Dr. Glazer earned her medical degree at Washington University in St. Louis and completed neurology training at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital. She completed fellowship training in Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology from the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties at University of Florida.
