Dr. LoGalbo is a Board Certified Clinical Neuropsychologist specializing in assessment and treatment of patients with traumatic brain injuries and concussions, and memory disorders, Alzheimer's disease, or other neurodegenerative diseases or dementias. He has expertise in comprehensive assessment of neurocognitive functioning and is passionate about assisting patients with the process of recovery, emotional adjustment, and acceptance to their new state of "normal" following development of these injuries and illnesses. He also has proficiency in treating patients with other neurological conditions as well, including brain tumors, stroke, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy.
At Florida Tech, Dr. LoGalbo teaches graduate classes in Neuropsychology and Neuropsychological Assessment. He is the clinical director and supervisor of concussion management for Florida Tech athletes, working closely alongside Dr. Frank Webbe. He is also the clinical neuropsychology director at the East Central Florida Memory Disorder Clinic, a state-sponsored program associated with Health First Aging Services in Brevard County, with a goal of assisting elderly patients with neurodegenerative diseases and their families. Dr. LoGalbo came to Florida Tech after 12 years at Florida Hospital in Orlando, where he was affiliated with the Florida Hospital Neuroscience Institute and Department of Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation. He is prior Clinical Co-Director of the Florida Hospital Sports Concussion Management program, and has worked with numerous high school, club, college and professional athletes and athletic programs across Central Florida. He was also intimately involved in the development of Florida Hospital's Maturing Minds Program, and assisted with this program's accomplishment of becoming the 16th state-sponsored Memory Disorder Clinic in 2017.
Dr. LoGalbo earned his PhD in medical/clinical psychology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and carried out his internship in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Washington Medical School and Harborview Medical Center, in Seattle, Washington. He then completed advanced fellowship training in Neuropsychology and Gerontology in The Geriatric Research, Education, and Clinical Center (GRECC) at the VA Puget Sound Health Care System in Seattle and American Lake, Washington. Dr. LoGalbo's research interests include exploring variables that influence or predict outcomes of sports concussion injuries including time to recovery and lingering post-concussive symptoms, as well as factors that mediate the onset and progression of memory or other cognitive decline beyond expectation for age in an elderly population.
