With America’s love of contact sports (football, anyone?), someone is going to get injured and need some form of healthcare. But what happens when it’s your brain that gets injured? Or your child’s brain? You don’t want just any doctor looking at that. You want an expert to treat you or your child, and not just anyone: You want the best.
With the recent increase in concussions to athletes, Virginia state law now requires every school to bench all student-athletes who sustain a blow to the head or show signs of a concussion until they have been seen and cleared by a physician. Only eight other states in the nation have such a law. Luckily, along with being among the first to take initiative in concussion legislature, Virginia has also spearheaded specialized concussion healthcare. The Commonwealth has some of the nation’s top-notch concussion centers and specialists to provide you or your child with some of the finest treatment in the nation.
Virginia has a reputation for providing some of the best health-care in the country, thanks in particular to the number of high-ranking physicians here in the Old Dominion. This is where Best Doctors comes in. For over twenty years, Best Doctors has conducted one of the largest surveys of medical doctors, to provide a list of the top five percent of physicians in America. When you have been injured or are sick, finding the right doctor to give you the right diagnosis and treatment can seem like a daunting process. But it’s a decision you don’t have to make on your own, because Virginia Living has teamed up with Best Doctors to bring you the list of the recognized experts, right here in Virginia. The only problem is, it’s a rather long list. But that’s a good thing.
