Conditions We Treat
Dr. Piedmont assesses and manages concussions in the context of medical needs, return to sport, school accommodations, and all of the unexpected changes that occur with this acute but "silent" injury.
ADHD and Learning Disorders
We provide assessments for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and learning disabilities, such as dyslexia. After testing is complete, we will develop a personalized treatment plan, provide documentation for school or work with specific interventions and accommodations, recommend whether medications might be appropriate for you or your child, and refers to specific local behavior specialists and psychiatrists that use our reports for treatment.
Dr. Piedmont will meet with you to discuss results in depth approximately three weeks after your testing appointment. Family and close friends are encouraged to join to understand your results and treatment plan, as well as assisting you to process results emotionally and make informed decisions.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a condition that can occur in various situations and affect people in many different ways.
We specialize in:
(1) identifying the extent of injury and stage in recovery
(2) evaluating impairments in cognition, behavior, and emotional regulation
(3) helping individuals and their families understand how the injury may affect daily functioning
(4) developing targeted treatment plans
(5) determining necessary levels of care and independence
We are a specialty practice and you may have been referred by your primary care doctor or another specialist, such as your neurologist. Our Center is committed to communicating with all providers regarding results and treatment plans in order to ensure streamlined and efficient continuity of care.
