Getting a second opinion for a traumatic brain injury is a good idea — there are many advanced diagnostics available today, and concerned patients and parents should feel free to seek additional input on their injury.
Our experts can:
Confirm your diagnosis, or suggest additional tests. Some injuries don’t appear on imaging tests, and others may be missed on initial examination. If we have any reason to believe your diagnosis needs confirmation, we may recommend additional advanced imaging or other tests to verify your condition.
Provide information about treatment options. Not every doctor or hospital has access to the most advanced technology or has the specialized training to identify the subtle effects of a traumatic brain injury.
Make a recommendation. We will recommend a course of treatment that our experts believe is best for you.
