Doctors Who Treat Post-Concussion Syndrome

When concussion symptoms persist for more than six weeks, the patient should seek evaluation and possible treatment for post-concussion syndrome. Patients may be seen by a neurologist, neurosurgeon, or neuropsychologist, depending on need. Imaging studies (MRI or CT scans) may be ordered if there is any reason to suspect complications.
