Specialized Treatment for Concussions in Buena Park, CA

Concussions Buena Park CAMarque Urgent Care in Buena Park, California, offers specialized treatment for concussions. If you or your child has sustained a blow to the head while playing sports, in a car accident, or during any other activity, we encourage you to promptly visit our urgent care center for expert evaluation and treatment. With extended hours 7 days a week, we are open to provide comprehensive care for concussions when most primary care offices are closed.

Marque Urgent Care spearheads HeadStrong, a first-of-its-kind community-based initiative to provide families in Buena Park, CA, with easy access to specialized care for concussions. This program focuses on:

  • Education – Leaders in our HeadStrong program visit local athletic organizations to educate coaches, players, and athletic directors about concussion prevention.
  • Evaluation – Patients with suspected concussions are promptly evaluated by Marque’s experienced HeadStrong physicians, who gauge cognitive function using the SCAT3 concussion assessment tool – a standardized and trusted method of examining individuals after head injuries.
  • Treatment – Treatment for concussions usually involves an extended period of rest, both physical and mental, and taking medicine to relieve headaches and other possible symptoms. A concussion patient at Marque will be carefully monitored by a HeadStrong physician, who will take the time to carefully inform the patient on his or her condition and determine an appropriate schedule of follow-up care. This physician will also sign off on health documents to allow the patient to return to sports when the time is right. In the event that the patient requires care from a neurologist, we will recommend one we know and trust.

To learn more about Marque Urgent Care’s HeadStrong program and our approach to treating concussions, contact our friendly staff today. Our physicians are proud to serve children and adults in Buena Park, CA.
