Our Clinicians

These clinicians have been trained to administer, read, and interpret ImPACT test results.  They can access ACA baseline tests from high schools in their region.  Athletes suspected of having a concussion can visit one of these clinicians for evaluation and to take a post-injury ImPACT test.  ACA does not cover costs of post-injury tests and office visits; most major insurances cover ImPACT testing and evaluations.

ACA desires to put aside each clinicians’ business affiliation.  We hope to create a complete network of clinicians working together to provide the best concussion management services possible, regardless of individual clinic or practice loyalty.  Many of these clinicians compete for patients in the normal healthcare world; we want concussion management to be cooperative and interconnected.
