You shouldn't have to manage a concussion on your own. Instead, come talk to one of our concussion management experts. Through NOWcare at The Center you can walk in without an appointment for an immediate concussion evaluation. Next, Dr. Ugalde's weekly Friday Concussion Clinics and monthly multidisciplinary concussion clinics are available to support those experiencing longer-term concussion symptoms. Finally, several times each year we offer ImPACT baseline testing for children ages 12-18. So, you can get the support your child needs to safely recover from a concussion.
Visit with one of our specialists trained in concussion management any time throughout the day.
- NOWcare is available Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at The Center with same day ImPACT testing if needed. Click here for more information.
Multidisciplinary Concussion Clinic
On the 3rd Friday of each month, Dr. Ugalde holds a multidisciplinary concussion clinic, which includes speech therapists, neuropsychologists, physical therapists, and representatives from the High Desert Educational Service District (HDSED). In addition, Dr. Ugalde also sees individual concussion patients during her regular clinic hours.

ImPACT Baseline Concussion Testing
The Center Foundation offers ImPACT Baseline Concussion Testing for ages 12-18 participating in high-risk sports, including football, soccer, basketball, and wrestling. Likewise, baseline testing is encouraged for athletes participating in less risky sports, and should be completed every two years beginning at age 12.

"When my son tore his ACL playing football, I had to put my heart in the hands of The Center Foundation trainer and the doctor. Because they were right there on the field to take care of him, they saved us a lot of emotional anguish. In addition, we were spared a financial burden because we didn’t have to call an ambulance and spend all night in the ER. They are my angels.“
