Hi! I’m Cris Wohlgehagen, MD – my patients kindly refer to me as Dr. Cris. I’m a neurologist who is headache medicine trained. Things have never been straight forward for me, even the road to becoming a doctor was filled with U-turns and detours! And now, having set sail on a new adventure to start a comprehensive headache center has proven to be a stormy endeavor.
I’ve never been on the social media bandwagon, never engaging in “My Face” or “Space Book” initially nor any other social media thereafter – who wants to hear what I’m doing or what I have to say? Well, now I feel it may make a difference in someone’s life to give my experience, if only for encouragement, of both the challenges and the victories of what goes on behind-the-scenes in the headache and facial pain clinic. This could be helpful to patients who wonder why things aren’t ideal, and also for providers who want to branch out. Or just to anyone who is curious about life as a headache specialist who is starting from scratch to build a membership based headache center!
