The below links provide contact information brain injury physicians and rehabilitation professionals after an individual leaves the care of a hospital.  The two most prominent types of BI specialists are neuropsychologists (who provide cognitive evaluations, counseling, and strategies for dealing with BI) and physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors (who provide treatment). Some links and contacts are to hospital systems with rotating physicians.  In these situations it will be necessary to request a neuropsychologist or PM&R doctor specifically.
