Neurologist

Dr. Mark Rapp is a neurologist  and part of Boston Center for Memory’s multi-disciplinary clinical and research team.  He has a strong interest in patient advocacy, patient-centered care, and improving patients’ quality of life through advances in care.   His patients appreciate his patient and family unit centered treatment plans, with a multidisciplinary approach to disease and symptom management.  He strongly feels that education and joint decision-making factoring in the patients’ values and goals is key to providing good care. He is excited to join the Boston Center for Memory team, as he feels BCM shares the same core goal of patient centered compassionate care. His specialization and training is in dementia, treating behavioral and psychiatric symptoms of dementia through pharmacology, and motor disorders.

 

 

Dr. Rapp earned his medical degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine, a medical school dedicated to patient centered compassionate care, while pushing the boundaries of scientific investigation.  He worked with Dr. Richard Kitsis on research on apoptosis and necrosis as part of the Louis Ritter and Gladys Ritter Livingston Research Fellowship. He also worked with Dr. Rubina Malik in the Gerontology department to create a model to enable “aging in place” for the most vulnerable populations. This inspired his passion to become a neurologist and help those with cognitive and behavioral challenges. He completed his internship at Maimonides Medical Center and his Neurology residency at The Harvard Medical School Neurology Residency Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Children's Hospital. Dr. Rapp is excited to be on the front lines and cutting edge treatment of advancing pharmacotherapy for cognitive and behavioral symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia.
