Alon Seifan

Alon Seifan, MD, MS is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Weill Cornell Medical College and an Assistant Attending Neurologist at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell.  Dr. Seifan practices within the Memory Disorders Program.  He diagnoses and treats a wide variety of neurodegenerative conditions including Alzheimer’s Disease, Dementia with Lewy Bodies, and Frontotemporal Dementia, as well as other conditions that cause memory or thinking changes, such as concussion.  Alon’s research involves identifying the early life factors that determine why some people get atypical forms of Alzheimer’s Disease, such as Primary Progressive Aphasia or Posterior Cortical Atrophy, which prominently affect language or vision.  This research may provide clues as to why Alzheimer’s Disease begins in the first place and may lead to preventative interventions to be delivered at critical stages of the lifespan. 

Dr. Seifan received his medical degree from Mount Sinai Icahn School of Medicine. He completed his residency in Neurology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and went on to complete a fellowship in Behavioral Neurology at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

Dr. Seifan is board certified in Neurology, board eligible in Behavioral Neurology and is a member of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN). He is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease and has authored several professional, peer-reviewed articles.  Alon directs a Community-based Outreach Program which uses accurate measurement of culturally-specific health beliefs to provide hypothesis-driven educational interventions intended to reduce clinical and research disparities related to dementia.
