Headache Center of Peachtree Neurological Clinic | Doctors & Clinics
We strive to treat each patient as an individual and tailor a treatment plan for you.
Headaches are one of the most common neurological complaints of patients in the primary care setting. Headaches affect millions of Americans and can lead to substantial disability to include missed days at work, strain in relationships, and overall decrease in the quality of life. Our interests include patients with the entire spectrum of headaches, from new onset headaches to chronic longstanding migraines that are refractory to treatment.
The goal of our team is to provide timely diagnosis, treatment, education and satisfaction to our patients. Diagnostic testing, if necessary, is prompt. When appropriate, new and approved treatment for chronic migraine including intravenous and intramuscular treatment is offered. Botox has been recently approved for chronic migraine and is available. Provisions for acute care of the severe or refractory headache patient on the same day is available to hopefully avoid expensive and lengthy ER visits.
At your initial visit, we will gather information regarding your headache, medical history, family history and diagnostic tests. If you have been seen previously by other physicians regarding your headache, please bring your medical records and a copy of the disc and/or report regarding previous diagnostic imaging. We will discuss your type of headache, diagnostic workup, possible triggers, diet, exercise and treatment goals. Some patients find it beneficial to have a list of questions and concerns to be discussed at your appointment. You will be given a headache calendar to track the days, possible triggers and treatment efficacy. You will also be given headache education.
We will attempt outpatient treatment for your headache as our primary goal. On rare occasions, inpatient treatment at Piedmont Hospital may be required.
