History of traumatic brain injury. Need new family doctor

Yes, please.
I have a 24 year old son with a traumatic brain injury. He sustained the injury 14 years ago. We need a new family doctor. I would like one who has experience with brain injury to manage the medications he's on. The neuropsychiatrist who prescribed his meds has just died.
We live on the Main Line outside of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania.

Thank you for posting your query.
Continuity of care is very important with regards to good recovery of your son after traumatic brain injury (TBI). Treatment involves use of medications, as well as counseling and physiotherapy.
Regarding a family doctor in your area, you can find out from your insurance company or people residing in your neighborhood.
Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
