Customer Question
My son just got...

My son just got a concussion - probably his fourth or fifth one - basketball. He's 22 and a student at GCU. The docs on campus recommend a neurologist. We live in Colorado and can't get an appointment here so I need to set him up with someone in Phoenix when he comes back to school in January.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

He's been given two shots of Toridol? I think that's what it is and he's only been to the doc on campus.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

He is a healthy kid - other than the usual cold/flu. His first concussion was in 2011 - football - and then his most recent was last week while playing basketball.

Doctor's Assistant: Do you have a fever? Do you have any other existing medical conditions?

No fever. Headache and noise sensitive and hard to concentrate but he thinks part of it could be stress-related because of finals.
