Scheduling was easy and the service was very professional and efficient. Dr S-Z was also professional but I don’t believe we were a ‘fit’ for each other as client & patient. I do not have any specific issues I am looking to address so perhaps this hospital clinic is better suited to those with more medically-based needs. I feel the clinical setting was also not conducive to a relaxed, intimate conversation as far as therapy is concerned.

Dr Sacks-Zimmerman has significant expertise understanding cognitive deficits related to TBI, and is able to explain clearly the specific challenges caused by each area of injury - executive functioning, information processing, attention/concentration - that interfere with daily functioning and work. She helps you understand how they interact with each other and design tasks and cognitive exercises that help people make significant improvement. Respectful, caring and a real life-saver.

I sustained a serious TBI, head trauma, and multiple other injuries in a bicycling accident in NJ and endured a long hospitalization and rehabilitation. I was subsequently referred to Dr. Sacks, who has been treating me for the many effects I have encountered from my accident. I would not be continuing to recover without her treatment and listening to me and the issues that I experience personally and professionally. I try to follow her advice, and I am grateful for my continuing improvement.
