Cristina Wohlgehagen, M.D.

Headache Specialist, Founder

Dr. Cris is fascinated by headache neurology and believes in a holistic approach to medicine. She is dedicated to the “treating of the whole person, not just the headache.”  By practicing this philosophy, she strives to provide hope for those suffering with headache and facial pain by building this comprehensive headache center where patients have access via traditional and virtual encounters to exceptional medical care, support groups, and other ancillary services. In effect, this means activating an international headache network, ensuring continuous access to medical personnel in order to meticulously tailor treatments and provide escalation of care on an individual basis, and introducing a direct healthcare model in order to break down the barriers to treatment.  Dr. Cris envisions a comprehensive and international headache center - going beyond the clinic - built to empower patients to take their lives back and feel like they are part of a community that truly understands them. Carpe Diem!
