Specialist Referrals

As a general pediatrician managing concussions we may refer patients to specialists if their concussion symptoms are not resolving significantly within 2-3 weeks after their initial visit. Providing a comprehensive approach to concussion care creates the best possible treatment. There are several doctors we work with to provide care for specific deficits associated with concussions.
