COMPREHENSIVE TREATMENT FOR PEOPLE INJURED IN ACCIDENTS

Dr. Jeff J. Mollins, Brooklyn’s premier accident specialist has been diagnosing, treating, and documenting injuries sustained by individuals involved in accidents (automobile, work, slip and fall, construction) for 30 years. Dr. Mollins works very closely with his “in house team” of referred medical specialist. By working with this accomplished group of physicians, Dr. Mollins is capable of documenting and treating pretty much any injury that can possibly result from an accident. The following is a list of referred medical specialists that work in house with Dr. Mollins:

  • Neurologist – A neurologist is a physician specializing in neurology and trained to investigate, or diagnose and treat neurological disorders. These represent any conditions that affect the central (Brain) or peripheral (spinal nerves) nervous system.  Symptoms that commonly require a neurologist include:
  • Coordination problems
  • Muscle weakness
  • Change in sensation
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness

Individuals involved in accidents often sustain injuries to the head and/or neck and back. These conditions involving the central and/or peripheral nervous system often require a referral to a competent, skilled doctor of neurology

  • Orthopedist – An orthopedist is a doctor that deals with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and non-surgical means to treat the following:
  • Musculoskeletal trauma
  • Spine diseases
  • Sports injuries
  • Degenerative diseases
  • Infections
  • Tumors
  • Congenital disorders

With the many musculoskeletal injuries (sprains, strains, fractures, tendon & ligament tears, inflammation etc) an orthopedist is essential in the arsenal of physicians required to treat injuries resulting from accidents.

  • Pain Management Specialist –  a pain management doctor, also called a pain specialist is a medical doctor who specializes in the evaluation, treatment and prevention of pain. Pain doctors may specialize in one of the following areas:
  • Arthritis
  • Back and neck pain
  • Chronic pain
  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headache
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Orofacial pain
  • Palliative care

When treating injuries sustained by accident victims, pain management is a must. Quite often the initial acute pain that accident victims experience must be quelled by a pain management specialist. When conservative treatment is ineffective, it is extremely important to have a competent, skilled, pain management doctor to administer to our injured patient relief from chronic pain. Besides the above referred medical specialist (neurology, orthopedic, pain management), Dr. Mollins’ comprehensive healthcare facility has chiropractic, physical therapy, acupuncture. All of our doctors are Board Certified, and can testify as experts if needed. In addition, Dr. Mollins and all of his referred medical specialist are Workers Compensation Certified. This means if you are injured on the job, you can be treated at no cost. If you are unable to work, you can receive lost wages and when you return to work (if possible), you may still receive treatment at no cost.
