For a minor concussion, your doctor may advise you to physically and mentally rest to speed up recovery. Some medication may be prescribed to manage pain. For more severe concussions, you may be tested to determine how much damage there is and if medical treatment is necessary.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.
