Welcome to Virtual Headache Specialist™. Whether you have found this website from self-research, or referral from family, friend, or a healthcare provider for your migraines, headaches or facial pain, I’m glad you’re here.
Many people suffer endlessly with debilitating migraine, headache, and facial pain disorders. Unfortunately, there are very few headache specialists to help them. This makes access to appropriate specialty care for proper diagnosis and treatment very difficult, and often impossible. The result is prolonged suffering, and a poor quality of life affecting personal, family, social, and work life.
I see many patients who fly from across the United States and other countries after waiting many months for an appointment. In the meantime, they are suffering and anxious about their ongoing pain, and uncertain of where to turn for help.
These are all reasons why I created and run Virtual Headache Specialist™. I am an ABPN (American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology) certified neurologist who is also a UCNS (United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties) certified Diplomat in Headache Medicine (Headache Specialist), working in a large headache center and neurological institute within a large academic medical institution.
Virtual Headache Specialist™ gives you free tools for personalized self-research on your type of headache or facial pain. These tools include a free headache and facial pain symptom checker which simulates an interview with a headache specialist, educational pages, and a popular blog about everything you want and need to know about migraines, headache, and facial pain. The blogs are written from my extensive experience as a headache specialist and neurologist treating these types of pain disorders all day, every day for years.
You can then take this personalized information to have a more effective conversation with your local doctor about your possible types of headache disorders, as well as treatments to ask about. There are no charges or fees of any kind. I created this site purely because I just want to see you feel and function better with less disruption to your life from your headaches.
Virtual Headache Specialist™ should never be considered a replacement to an office visit with a doctor. An office visit with your doctor is MANDATORY for a detailed medical history and neurological examination. Virtual Headache Specialist™ does not provide a definitive diagnosis or treatment recommendations. These will come from your local doctor. However, Virtual Headache Specialist™ will provide you with personalized information on these topics for you to discuss with your doctor. Virtual Headache Specialist™ should be considered as a supplement to an office visit with your doctor, not a replacement.
Ultimately, my hope is that the information obtained from Virtual Headache Specialist™ will provide a starting point towards a path of better clarity and understanding of your type of headache disorder, less pain, improved function, and a better quality of life.
