The standard medical clinic environment today is a rushed affair, and both doctors and patients feel shortchanged. When you choose to make an investment in your own health, you want your doctor to do the same. At the Ament Headache Center, we take the time to treat the whole person. All symptoms are clues to your diagnosis, and we will recommend treatment that will not only reduce your headache pain but improve your life.
Your initial appointment will be approximately 90 minutes. You will meet with me, Dr. Ament for your evaluation and physical examination. I will review your headache history, previous headache remedies, migraine treatment, testing, medical history and discuss any additional concerns you may have. From this foundation, we will develop a plan of care specifically designed for you. Our success is in this partnership.
Maybe there’s a reason that you have headaches. We often find that headaches are an outward manifestation of something else – a medical condition, stress or lingering injuries. It takes knowledge, training and experience to diagnose layered, often subtle, root causes. At the Ament Headache Center, we order the necessary tests to keep you safe and to ensure we have the correct diagnosis. We will also explore why you may have had trouble getting better before.
Every person’s experience with head pain is unique. Somewhere in what you tell us is going to be the key to helping you feel better. So we ask questions, and we listen. What you have to say matters here. We help you take control of your life again.
Whatever type of headache you may have – whether it’s a common headache disorder such as migraine, or more complex headache type – we are here to help.
Migraine Relief — this includes migraine treatment for common migraine, classic migraine/migraine with aura, menstrual migraine and menstrually-related migraine, ocular migraine, vestibular migraine, chronic migraine, complicated migraine and other migraine variants.
We also offer a range of migraine treatment and headache interventions, including:
If you suffer from a headache or a migraine more than three times a month, or if you find you are missing out on time with family and friends, mention it to your doctor. Also, tell him or her if you are using over-the-counter remedies for headaches more than two days a week.
Many people incorrectly believe that “you just have to learn to live with your migraines”. That is no longer the case. There are safe and effective treatments available.
