Diana Kerwin MD founded Kerwin Medical Center in 2019 and has since become a nationally renowned clinical research site dedicated to achieving the best possible outcome for patients and families affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias through its advanced research and treatment capabilities.

Our team of medical professionals understand the uncertainty and impact that neurological disorders can have on an individual and their family, and from that recognition emerged a guiding principle – our patients are family. And each day we take care of who matters most, family. We are proud of our work but also know it’s a privilege because we’re helping to make lives better today by offering family education, community outreach, and delivering the best possible opportunity for treatment within clinical research.

“We work everyday to help patients with Alzheimer’s disease and other neurologic diseases of aging. Our Center is dedicated to bringing promising clinical trials to patients and families in the DFW Metroplex to participate in finding better therapies and treatments for neurodegenerative diseases. We will not stop until we help to find the cure.”
