Headaches are extremely common and we are happy to help you identify the cause of your headaches and find a solution for your pain. Scarsdale Medical Group’s headache specialist Dr. Kristen Sahler is board-certified in headache medicine and is an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of headache disorders. She works closely with you to gather information necessary to develop an individualized treatment plan.
If you are wondering if you should pursue medical treatment for your headaches, please consider the following:
Do your headaches affect your daily life including work, school, family and social activities?
Are your headaches becoming more frequent and/or more severe?
Are over-the-counter medications no longer effective?
Your initial visit will include an assessment with the physician in order to find out specific details about your headaches including how often they occur, possible triggers or causes and the severity of the headaches. You will also undergo a neurological exam and further testing such as brain imaging or blood work if necessary.
