About Zac Yanis, PhD.

As a Neuropsychologist, I specialize in the evaluation and diagnosis of various neurological and psychological disorders. These include, but are not limited to traumatic brain injury, stroke, dementia, multiple sclerosis, neurodevelopmental disorders, and mood disorders. These conditions cause or contribute to a combination of difficulties in thinking skills (i.e., attention, memory, thinking speed, decision-making), behavior, and emotions. These difficulties can result in a confusing and challenging experience. I specialize in helping others understand and improve their experience.

During my career, I have been fortunate enough to serve patients within outpatient, inpatient, and private practice settings. This includes attorney referrals for forensic evaluations, as well as referrals from neurology offices, inpatient and outpatient neurorehabilitation programs, and Workers' Compensation companies.

I also serve as an adjunct professor in the Department of Clinical Psychology at Mercer University (Atlanta Campus), where I teach doctorate level courses in neuropsychological assessment and the biological bases of behavior. During my time on Shepherd Center’s inpatient ABI unit, I served as a faculty member for the APPCN accredited neuropsychology fellowship training program.
