The ACS was developed by Mitchell Clionsky, Ph.D. ABPP-CN, board certified in clinical neuropsychology, and Emily Clionsky, MD, board certified in psychiatry and neurology.
The ACS is based on more than 30 years of experience evaluating patients who have suffered concussions in auto collisions, falls, and sports events. The specific data in the database is drawn from 4 years of consecutive patients who were evaluated and treated at the MVA Center for Rehabilitation in Springfield, MA.
The MVA Center is a multidisciplinary outpatient treatment program combining medical care, physical therapy, and chiropractic treatment in a coordinated approach to help people injured in automobile accidents. The MVA Center started in 1990 and has treated more than 25,000 injured patients to date.
Both doctors Clionsky have been admitted in a variety of state and federal courts as expert witnesses for plaintiffs and defendants in cases involving traumatic brain injury, PTSD, eye-witness testimony, competency to stand trial and capacity to execute wills and estates.
