About

Bio

My interest is in the evaluation and treatment of migraines/headaches. I am board certified in Internal Medicine and Neurology. I practiced as a general neurologist for over ten years and then decided to focus on migraine/headaches. I have had migraines since childhood and the causes and treatment interest me. My wife, Mary and I started a headache clinic and have worked together for the past 15 years. My medical training in Neurology was at Wake Forest in North Carolina.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Find the cause: Passing out or syncope is an abnormal event and requires a complete work up by an md. It is sometimesba neurologic or cardiac problem but there are other potential causes. It is unsafe to continue without a medical evaluation. Your body is telling you that something is wrong so dont ignore it. You are jeopardizing your health/safety and the safety of others if you are driving.

Early evaluation: If you have not been diagnosed with migraine and/or you are experiencing the worst headache of your life, go to the emergency department where a ct scan will be done to rule out a cerebral hemorrhage.
