We had a great experience with Dr. Kirelik and the whole Concussion Clinic. Great demeanor with both the kids and their parents. Hope to never need the Concussion Clinic again, but we'd definitely recommend Dr Kirelik.

Dr Kirelik was very personable, knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend her to anyone dealing with a concussion.

Our 14 year old son hit the basketball court with his head. Luckily no permanent damage to the court, or his head. He did sustain a significant concussion though. Dr. Kirelik, and her team at Rocky Mountain Pediatric Orthopedics, were beyond wonderful. They carefully assessed our son, and his injuries, and had a comprehensive plan to get him back on his feet and enjoying his favorite sporting events again. We would highly recommend Dr. Kirelik!!
