Click here to see Dr Zheng’s MMSE result

Dr Zheng was disoriented. He was able to repeat three words immediately, but was able to recall only one. He spelled ‘world’ backwards correctly for two letters, but missed the last three. He was unable to read commands correctly but followed verbal commands (by interpreter). He could write a simple sentence with assistance, and incorrectly copied the intersecting pentagons.

Dr Zheng scored 15/30 on his MMSE. This is consistent with progression of his Alzheimer’s disease.
