Dr Twichell was part of the team I saw to evaluate year-long post concussion symptoms. She was outstanding. Approachable and patient with all of my questions. I felt she would let me ask questions all day if I needed to do so. We agreed on an approach to managing sleep and I felt that we came up with a great plan and that I can contact her with followup if things don't work. She was absolutely fantastic!
