The first morning of Rounds was confusing and a little frustrating because I did not understand what to expect and the dr could not offer me much info so my anxiety was high. Every day after that was great though. Dr. Saper and the whole team were calming, informative, cheerful, and great to work with.

i thought the care team was very well organized and coordinated. Could have used more time for questions and discussion of side effects, but overall I felt 'heard' which is what is most important.

The clinic is run out of Mobil office trailers and the hospital is not to far. They were unable to do anything for my Tbi. I would not recommend. To top it off they do not honor reasonable and customary rates paid out by insurance companies. I felt they took advantage of me.
We see the most challenging cases from across the US; having helped many patients unable to receive benefit from their local doctors. We wish we could cure all of our patients. We can't. No doctor can.We do our best to manage expectations upfront. We explain the carrier's benefits. Every carrier is different. Even when a carrier provides limited benefits, we work with the patient to make it less challenging.We have helped thousands of patients who know our doctors and our reputation.
