neuropsychologist testimonials san diego

       A few years ago I was in a bad car accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury, (TBI). I was left with severe migraines and seizures, it was a life changing event ...not in a good way. For a long time after the accident, I could not understand what had happened, why I was having concentration and balance problems that I never had before , and I was afraid I would never be able to have a normal life again. .On the outside I looked the same, but on the inside I was very different. Many people around me could not understand how my life had changed. I did not know how to move ahead in my life and at times I felt despair and fear. Things that before had come so easily to me like being physically active, dancing and biking suddenly seemed very difficult....I was falling down, and even going to a restaurant with bright lights and loud noises made me feel exhausted or sometimes agitated.... Some days I was unable to communicate in the same manner , and getting back to "me" seemed out of reach . In many ways, I was
lost and unable to comprehend how to move forward.

Through my neurologist, I was referred to Dr. Mark McDonough who explained to me what had occurred in my brain from the trauma, and he confirmed for me many of the things I was feeling. His approach was to be both compassionate and encouraging, and he gave me insights into how to move ahead in the parts of my life that I felt I had lost . He directed me to the Neuro-Rehabilitation Outpatient Day treatment Unit where I received extensive physical and cognitive therapy. His initial approach was to encourage me to continue to work on the areas of deficits, and by doing this I was able to move ahead and get back more of my life .

Dr. McDonough is a gentle man, and allowed me to open up about the fears I had about the changes in my life. Because of his experience in this area and working with the soldiers coming back from war right now, I was able to put my trust in him . I believe his insights into the area of TBI, are on the cutting edge across the country because of the experience he and his team have now over the last decade, and I feel blessed he was one of my healers at a time when I felt there was no hope. He and his team have put me back onto the road to recovery and moving ahead in life.

       Dr. McDonough Everything went well at the DMV today. You impressed the lady that interviewed me. She said you presented my case so well - all the questions were answered in your report. All my family join me in thanking you for all the kindness and hard work you put into my case. I want to thank you for restoring my self-confidence. My friendship will accompany this release to use my letter to any advantage to your wonderful practice.

Your friend,

       Dr. McDonough It took me over 3.5 years to find someone to trust. I have Traumatic Brain Injury. I am treated with respect by him and his associate Dr. Lipori. My behavior is a direct result of my injuries . and isn't taken personally by the staff. I try to be as polite and flexible as I can but I have my moments of utter frustration as to the changes I have had to endure.

I have nothing but Kudos for the work they do,

       Dr. McDonough My son has been seen by many psychologists over the past several years. I was losing all confidence in psychologists due to numerous misdiagnosis and little progress. Dr. McDonough restored my faith in this field of medicine. After testing my son and speaking with us one time, he pro~ided the most comp ehensi~e nd accurate assessment we've seen to date. For the first time, what we were reading actually described my son! Moreover, he described what could an should b done to help my son.

most thorough & insightful we've seen,


       Dr. McDonough Thank you so much for the report and your kind attention to our time constraints. I very happy, while I appreciate and respect your honesty and approach.

I will keep you apprised of the progress of the case.

Thanks again,


       Dr. McDonough is an excellent Doctor. He was wonderful at identifying and testing Ken and his brain injury. He was extremely helpful in helping me understand and document to Ken’s medical board for his military career. I felt educated and supported by his care. He has become more to us than just a fabulous doctor. He has become a friend and has included us in the Brain Injury family.

We have seen multiple physicians and we felt most comfortable with Dr. McDonough. We are almost 5 years post-injury and the information and support I received from him as a spouse has encouraged me to learn and apply what has been and what will continue to be needed to compliment Ken’s brain injury and not compete with it. I feel Dr. McDonough doesn’t just put on the white coat; he truly wears it because he cares. Thanks again Doc
