In Reply We agree with Dr Wijeratne that more information on the results of cognitive testing of older physicians would be helpful, including the optimal age at which to start testing. The screening test created domain-specific results for executive function and other domains, and we did evaluate individuals who were impaired in 1 or more specific domains despite an overall passing score.1 We extended our screening process in these domains for these clinicians. We proceeded with full neuropsychological testing for individuals with worrisome results in specific domains.
