Monument Health’s Concussion Team integrates multiple disciplines to care for athletes, workers and any community members who suffer head trauma, traumatic brain injury or concussion.
Our goal is to provide a comprehensive and coordinated team approach to help you or your family member get the best concussion care in the region.
Diagnosis and Treatment
When you have sustained a head injury, our qualified concussion management team will use an advanced pathway of evidence-based care to begin your diagnosis and treatment. This will include neurocognitive evaluation and treatment utilizing advanced technology and evidence-based medicine. This modern approach will determine treatment options that will help you on the path to healing.
Certified Concussion Program
Our concussion care team is proud to partner with ImPACT® (Immediate Post Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) to guide the monitoring, testing and treatment of each patient.
ImPACT® is the only FDA-approved concussion assessment tool for ages 5 to 59. It allows our athletic trainers, sports medicine specialists, and other ImPACT® trained providers to properly aid our partner sports programs as well as our community in post-concussion evaluation and treatment.
Concussions left untreated can lead to ongoing difficulties with life’s activities – that’s why it’s important to seek care if you’ve had an injury. Bringing you advanced concussion care and brain injury management, the experienced team at Monument Health is here when you need us.
What People Are Saying
I absolutely love the ability to schedule appointments or contact my doctor on the MyChart app. Dr. Ptacek is always a wonderful care giver and Laura at the front desk always makes the clinic feel like you’ve walked into a friends house.
Dr. Weaver is such an excellent care provider because she listens, understands and is very forthright with her evaluations. She explains concerns and treatments thoroughly. She is a great lady and outstanding physician.
There are not enough words to describe how compassionate and caring the nurses are at the Hill City Clinic. Nurse Lois Gilbert is always friendly, always has a smile on her face and her demeanor and tone towards the patient is outstanding!
I’ve been seeing Dr. Legner (PA-C) for years. I won’t go to another doctor unless I have to. She’s always so professional and takes time with you in the exam room to make sure you understand what the problem is and the plan to fix it!
Dr. Willoughby, what a pleasure it was to see him! He is truly concerned about me and my health. He obviously studied my records. We had a discussion about my health, enabling us to work together. What a welcome relief to find this caring man!
Dr. Nylander was very kind and approachable. She listened to my concerns/reason for the visit and responded with compassionate care (she looked at me and smiled…isn’t that great?? Human connection!) She knew what to do and I felt like I was in good hands.
