Concussion center to fill need in the Valley

By Logan Lafferty

The Banner Concussion Center at Good Samaritan Hospital hopes to reduce the wait for specialists by offering physicians, neuropsychologists, vestibular therapists, athletic trainers, audiologists and vision therapists under one roof…More than 3,000 people visit Good Smaritan’s emergency room annually with head trauma, he said. That’s just a fraction of the number of injured people in the Valley, said Dr. Bert Vargas, a specialist at the Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Concussion Program in Phoenix.
