I have been suffering from the effects of a traumatic brain injury for the last 13 years. I also have a severed nerve in my eye and severe damage to my inner ear which affected my equilibrium and caused me to fall a lot...at least a couple times a month, resulting in many concussions. I had constant brain fog, severe memory issues - I was prescribed a drug for early onset alzheimers -, I was unable to take more than one step, heel to toe, without falling. I was breaking bones from falling and always black and blue with numerous trips to the ER. These are just the most severe complications. There are more. I was so desperate for healing, I traveled from Oklahoma to Wexford, PA to see Dr. Simkovich. No more brain fog, my memory is vastly improved, I haven't fallen in about two months (since my treatment), and I can walk backwards and forward heal to toe across a room without falling! Dr. Simkovich changed my life. I would highly recommend anyone with a TBI to get treatment from him. I would have done whatever necessary to get into his office and I'm so very glad I did.

Dr. Charlie treated me for the head injuries I had as a player. Before he treated me, I would read something and have no idea what I had just read. Because of his treatment, when I read I don't get tired and understand everything I read.

I used to get tired after reading just one paragraph. My ability to concentrate was awful. Thanks to Dr. Simkovich’s treatment, I can now read several chapters without a problem.

I once was plagued with balance problems. Being a professional athlete, I cannot afford to have balance problems. I started going to Dr. Simkovich for treatment. After a few treatments, I began to see great improvement with my balance. My balance is no longer a problem for me, thanks to the treatment given by Dr. Simkovich.

Tom had the following problems: He could only hold a pen like a dagger; He would switch hands, usually mid-line on a page; He was unable to cross mid line with his left hand (he writes left handed); He had difficulty following instructions; He had difficulty handling multiple commands or thoughts. When Tom had completed his treatment with Charles Simkovich and went back to his learning disability teacher for the first new session, she immediately asked, “What happened?!” She remarked to me that the change in Tom was “unbelievable”. She noticed the following things: His motor coordination was almost completely normal; He could hold a pen properly in his left hand, not like a dagger; He was not switching back and forth between hands while writing; He could cross the mid-line of a page, continuing to write with his left hand; He could follow instructions, even complex ones, he was tuning in instead of out; He was able to deal with multiple concepts and directions at one time; Tom was happier and remarked that Dr. Simkovich’s work “made it easier”. There was a tremendous boost in his confidence and self-esteem. Later when Tom had further cranial/spinal adjustments by Dr. Simkovich, Linda Miller noticed “another surge” in Tom’s development. When I thanked Linda Miller, a learning disability specialist having her master’s degree in special education/learning disability and who has extensive experience in working with disturbed and mentally disabled kids, she stated: I can’t take credit for the help” (meaning that it was Dr. Simkovich, rather than she, who turned Tom around).

To: Athletes and Coaches: The Duquesne University basketball team has worked with Dr. Simkovich’s Athletic Engineering program for the past year. The results were impressive, with significant improvements measured in their vertical leap, standing broad jump and in the weight room. My Son also worked in the program, which allowed me to observe the program and the changes it makes from both a coach’s and parent’s perspective. Dr. Simkovich picked up on gait issue with my son during his first session with him. I can say that the improvements my son make in his coordination, foot speed and strength were accomplished quickly, and to a much larger degree than expected. I would recommend this program to any athlete who wishes to improve their physical skills. Sincerely,

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. My daughter and I are truly grateful for the time we spent with Dr. Simkovich. He has transformed her life in such a positive way. She began to show symptoms of a mild brain trauma in her junior year of high school. She lost her ability to concentrate for periods of time. She showed symptoms of depression and started to have OCD tendencies at the same time. She began playing competitive soccer at 7 years old and the header was her favorite way to contact the ball. By her freshman year of college, her symptoms had gotten worse. She couldn’t sleep through the night and would have anxiety attacks. She began to need ADD medication to study at all. Her grades were sub-par to say the least. I found out about Dr. Simkovich through a friend, and I immediately arranged to take my daughter to Pittsburgh during her spring break of her freshman year of college. After only a few treatments, she felt the benefits. She was able to sleep through the night for the first time in months. The cloud of depression-like symptoms that hung over her head lifted and felt rejuvenated. Upon returning to school, her reading comprehension improved dramatically such that she could understand and focus without the help of her ADD medication. Her grades improved tremendously, but the best part is that her self-confidence increased all thanks to the work of Dr. Simkovich.

Dr. Charlie, Thanks to your great care, our son Rockwell has been dismissed from further speech therapy session that was treatment his verbal apraxia condition. Rockwell has been receiving speech therapy one to two times per week since he was two year old (4 years total). Our speech therapist, Dr. Miller, released Rockwell much earlier than expected. He has experienced great success in school and reading which attributable to the progress in his speech and cognitive functions. Thank you for all of your treatment, support and insight! Your care is why our son’s progress has been extraordinary! Sincerely,

Dear Dr. Simkovich, I want to let you know how well Michael is doing since his treatment in July. The first evidence of success came after Michael took the hunter safety course to be able to get a junior hunting license. The class started at 6-9:30pm on Friday and then 8-4 on Saturday with the rest in the last hour. Out of 104 questions, which were true/false, multiple choice, essay, and matching, Mike missed 2. It’s a major miracle for him to be able to retain, sort out and keep it in proper order. The first week of school, I went to his teacher and took the information I received from your office. I asked her to not treat Michael any differently than the other students in testing. For two years, he has had to have oral spelling tests to be able to achieve a passing grade. On his written tests, he would miss 11-14 out of 20 words. Last Friday he took his first written spelling test and got a 100%! The anger and frustration are no longer a problem. He’s actually enjoying learning! We have seen such a big change in his attitude about school and homework. He’s bringing very little home where he used to bring 4-5 books home before and have almost the entire lesson to do in each subject. There is such a difference! Thank you so much for being there for these kids. I am telling other mothers of L.D. children about you and Michael’s results. It has been worth every penny and second of time we invested. Again, thank you so much! A grateful mother,

Mary Wilson
