Welcome to International Headache Center (IHC). IHC was founded by Dr. Cris in February of 2018 and officially opened July 2018. We are an integrative, holistic center designed for the treatment of headache and facial pain. Using a membership-based system and a bit of modern technology, we have revived direct access to care - a seemingly simple concept that hearkens back to the days when physicians and patients communicated directly and without road blocks. These days, that simple and direct approach to healthcare seems to have gotten wound up in policies and procedures that divide doctors from patients. We are fixing that!
On an operational level, moreover, we promote a team approach. This means that our staff, our partners, our patients, and our general community are involved in providing care and engendering wellness. At IHC our team’s goal is to improve quality of life - yours and ours! By working together through all aspects of care management, we aim to get to know you - - treating the individual as a whole allows us to help you through your struggles to make your life better.
IHC also offers preventive neurology appointments. Preventive neurology is a concept that is just beginning to sprout in the medical field and, until now, has only been available at select academic centers and specialized clinics. In an effort to share this important idea and put it into practice, we are now offering neurology wellness visits for young and middle-aged adults. Such a visit ascertains modifiable risk-factors and sets forth an action plan to keep your brain as healthy and highly functioning as possible - for as long as possible. That’s right, getting care by a neurologist BEFORE the onset of a neurological problem can keep the brain healthy. Together, we identify ways to improve, postpone, and sometimes even prevent neurological conditions altogether. IHC professionals stay up-to-date on the most recent evidence-based research and concepts, and then we pass those nuggets on to you. Wellness visits are especially important for those who have a family history of neurological conditions, but also for those with healthy brains who want a baseline of neurological function and some coaching on modifiable risk-factors.
Do you have headaches or facial pain? Has the standard healthcare model failed you? Do you suffer from headaches and want to take a more holistic approach to treating them? Have you mentioned headaches to a care-provider and felt brushed-off by the medical community? Has a loved one suffered from cognitive decline and left you wondering what you could be doing for that person and yourself? Do you feel that your thinking is not as sharp as it used to be and are you wondering if this is due to “age” or something else?
You may have found your neurological home at International Headache Center!
