Why Choose Headache Care at Vanderbilt

  • Experienced doctors

    Our team of neurologists and nurse practitioners has extensive experience in identifying the causes of chronic headaches and providing innovative treatment options.

  • A team approach

    In addition to your primary care doctor, we also work with other specialists whose expertise might help treat your headaches. For example, if you’re experiencing vision problems related to your headaches, we might consult with an ophthalmologist. If your headaches are causing facial pain, we might bring in a doctor who specializes in issues involving the ears, nose and throat (ENT).

  • Personalized care

    Because there are many different causes and symptoms of chronic headaches, no two patients are alike. We’ll work with you on a personalized treatment plan to address your problems, including triggers and symptoms. Our holistic approach might include lifestyle modifications, supplements, medication and/or changes in your diet.

Patient Resources

Before your first visit with us, keep a headache log so that we can detect patterns of frequency, triggers and pain levels. Please bring that information to your appointment, along with digital copies of any imaging you’ve undergone for headaches, such as MRIs, MRAs and/or CT scans.
