I Forgot To Ask The Doctor About...

You have a question you've been meaning to ask your doctor for weeks. Then the day of the appointment finally arrives and after the exam is done, the doctor asks you, "Any questions?", and your mind goes blank. That is, until you leave the appointment and then you remember what you wanted to ask.  But by then, the doctor is long gone. You make another mental note to ask your question at the next appointment.

But if you don't want to wait that long, you may want to try "Ask the TBI Doc". This program allows you to ask questions as soon as they occur to you.  By clicking on this link, "Ask the TBI Doc", you can send an email to a brain injury specialist at RIC who will answer the questions you forgot to remember at that last appointment.

Do you want more details about some new treatment you saw on the news?

Did you hear about an interesting study and you need  more information?

Are there symptoms that you've noticed and you want to run them past somebody to see what they think? 

Did a therapist say something you didn't quite understand and you need someone to explain? 

It's all fair game for the TBI Doc. While we will attempt to answer each question individually, answers to selected questions that are of general interest to individuals who have sustained a brain injury and their families may be posted on our website. Your name or email address will not be used.
