Sports Medicine specialist Chad Beattie, MD, has introduced a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment of concussions. The Hawthorn Medical Comprehensive Concussion Clinic offers a wide array of resources to treat concussions, including medications, therapy and neuropsychology, and uses ImPACT, a computerized system that measures aspects of cognitive functioning. The clinic has a team of specialists. In addition to Dr. Beattie, a certified athletic trainer, our occupational, physical and speech therapists work with patients to safely get them back to work, school or sport.
