HeadFirst Sports Injury and Concussion Care: Get Better Faster

HeadFirst is delighted to now be part of the MedStar Health family. Together, we provide extensive services for the diagnosis, management, and treatment of mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (mTBI). We care for patients with head injuries from any cause, including slips and falls, motor vehicle accidents, and sports injuries.

Initial evaluations are usually done in an emergency department or urgent care center, or by the patient’s primary care physician. Righttime Medical Care and Medstar Urgent Care can provide initial urgent head trauma evaluations. A referral is then made to one of our concussion clinics for further care. We do not provide acute, emergency evaluations—please call 911 or take safe transport to the nearest emergency center if this is needed.

After your initial evaluation, you can make an appointment at one of our concussion clinics by calling the appointment phone lines below between the hours of 8am and 6pm:
