Acute Migraine Relief

(Non-Ketamine Treatment)

MIGRAINES — MORE THAN A BAD HEADACHE

Despite holistic therapies, trigger avoidance, prescription and over-the-counter medications, Americans make 1.2 million hospital trips (one every ten-seconds) a year for headaches that are an overwhelming, 90%, deemed non-life-threatening. All too often, migraine sufferers and headache specialists, report suboptimal treatment in the emergency and urgent care setting.

OUR ACUTE MIGRAINE APPROACH

We offer migraine-specific therapy that includes multiple intravenous (IV) medications and fluids to rapidly treat pain, dehydration, nausea, and inflammation. We optimize treatment by providing the following:

Prompt and empathetic care

Experience treatment without the long wait and crowded spaces. Patients can usually be in and out in under an hour.

Calm and soothing environment

Our clinic is designed for relaxation. We are considerate of the sounds, lighting, odors, and patient comfort.

Healthier space

We limit exposure to transmissible illnesses by providing each patient with their own treatment room, appointment staggering, and symptomatic infectious disease screening.

Service pricing that is fair & transparent

Our concierge approach enables greater efficiency and personal attention. There are no surprise deductibles or invoices by mail. We do accept FSA/HSA cards.

If your headache symptoms are accompanied by a fever, stiff neck, neurological symptoms (focal weakness, difficulty speaking, seizures, etc.), or is trauma related, then you need to be seen in an emergency room.
