Nexus Neurorecovery Center

Outpatient Neuropsychological Testing for Workers’ Compensation Cases & Insurance-Based Referrals

The Nexus Neurorecovery Center cognitive team evaluates individuals who have suffered a brain injury.  We frequently work with those who have experienced traumatic brain injury (TBI), ranging from closed head injuries (concussion and/or brain bleeds) to penetrating brain injuries, resulting from motor vehicle crashes and sports- or work-related accidents. The cognitive team also works with brain-injured individuals who incurred neurological and psychological problems from stroke, sleep-related disorders, chemoradiation, and/or autoimmune conditions.

After gaining an understanding of a person’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses ­— as well as any underly psychological issues — we collaborate with physicians and case management to establish treatment objectives and plans. Because individuals do not have to be a Nexus Neurorecovery Center resident to participate in neuropsychological testing at our campus, our team will also coordinate with stakeholders and medical teams from other facilities and agencies.
