State-of-the-Art Clinical Research Trials
It is with deep regret we report that Frederick Warren Schaerf, M.D., Ph.D., our beloved founder passed away on July 14, 2018 after a courageous and very public battle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's Disease). In 1989, Fred moved to Fort Myers, Florida and established Neuropsychiatric Associates of Southwest Florida, providing state of the art psychiatric care to well over 28,000 patients for over 28 years.
Additionally, in 2001, Fred founded the Neuropsychiatric Research Center of Southwest Florida, which has become a nationally and internationally recognized clinical research site, specializing in Alzheimer’s disease and related memory disorders.
Fred always took a strong leadership role and was a tireless advocate, educating the leadership of Southwest Florida in psychiatric principles and promoting improvements in the psychiatric care of the citizens of Southwest Florida.

Frederick W. Schaerf, M.D., Ph.D. has conducted over 100 clinical trials dedicated to dementia. You will receive the latest diagnostics and treatments available in a safe, well controlled environment.
