When it comes to concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), there are a lot of brain rehab clinics out there that promise TBI patients the most amazing results - often even within a week time.
What these TBI centers don't tell you, is that this does not apply to all TBI patients. In fact, it is rather rare that lasting and significant results can be obtained during such a 1 week program. On the contrary : if your brain (and cellular) metabolism is not functioning properly anymore, or in case of microglial priming, an intensive 1 week TBI program can actually make you even worse. Some TBI patients can't even get out of bed anymore for months after such a treatment, that can seriously put your health at risk. Some TBI treatment centers simply take advantage of TBI patients who are desperately seeking help to overcome the devastating consequences of TBI - and charge them thousands of dollars in the process, money that TBI patients often have to borrow. In the end, for nothing - except wasting your time, feeling miserable and utterly disappointed and being exposed to debts. Unfortunately, this is a reality today.
And that is exactly why I appreciate Dr. Brandon Nutt so much. He treats his patients in an ethical way, he is careful, cautious not to make promises he can not keep, he first thoroughly examines his patients physically, but also questions them about their daily habits, sleep patterns, nutrition, he verifies blood results and everything else he can possibly verify. He clearly explains possible treatments in a detailed and easy-to-understand way, so you have a realistic idea about what you can expect as an outcome and what you can not. He is genuinly concerned for the wellbeing of his patients and takes his time to advise them on a number of aspects that could improve their overall health. He has in-depth knowledge of TBI and the secondary health issues that result from it and from what I've seen of him, invests a lot of his time in continuous study and research to assist his patients even better and come up with even more effective treatment. Moreover, he shares his knowledge and experience through various educational programs, and helps to raise awareness and to prevent people from developping secondary complaints - in his unique and modest way. I believe he leads by example, he walks his talk and I consider him to be one of the most trustworthy and reliable TBI health professionals in the US - and I talked to MANY of them these past years. In short : he's a man of science who treats his patients with this heart. So yes, I can definitely recommend him and the 5 stars are well deserved ! Keep up the good work Dr Nutt !
