My daughter fell while playing basketball and hit her head on the floor 6 days ago. I have been calling her pediatrician since Saturday kept telling me that she did not need to been see by th doctor, we go to take her in Thurs (yesterday) and doctor says that she cannot release back to play for two weeks and there is a rule about that, is this true? She didn t do any exams, just said dr doesnt want to be liable and it s the rule 2 weeks?
