CONDITIONS WE TREAT
Let us simplify what may otherwise seem complicated.
We realize you and your loved ones are more than a label. Using common diagnostic terms can aid understanding and help guide treatment solutions.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Impact on the head demonstrating injury and loss of consciousness, amnesia, disorientation and confusion, seizures, or visual impairments with lasting effects. Major or mild neurocognitive functional decline in performance. Cognitive functioning may be apparent in attention, irritability, anxiety, frustration, dizziness, headache, fatigue, seizures, visual impairment, executive ability, learning, memory, information processing, aggression, depression, difficulty concentrating, light sensitivity and social engagement. Individuals with traumatic brain injury may not return to pre-injury functioning in all or any areas. A neuropsychologist will evaluate and recommend treatment options for symptoms.

What We Don’t Treat
We are not an emergency clinic. We are an outpatient provider so we do not have inpatient facilities. We are not a hospital and do not provide detox services for addictions. We do not treat schizophrenia or brain disorders related to advancing age such as dementia or Alzheimer’s. We are not contracted with any court system and do not provide court ordered services related to child custody or other matters.
ADHD affects 11% of school-age children (4-17) and symptoms continue into adulthood in more than 75% of children. Boys are over twice as likely to be diagnosed with ADHD (13.3%) compared to girls (5.6%)
