Concierge services like extended office visits, direct provider access, and same-day appointments for established patients are standard, without the concierge fee.
Aside from the spa-like ambiance, patients can expect individualized attention and treatment options that integrate the best of prescriptive and non-prescriptive treatments, observing standards of care and evidence-based recommendations per The American Headache Society and The American Academy of Neurology, including preventative and immediate-acting medications, dietary supplements and nutraceuticals, botanicals and essential oils, and headache-specific procedural medicine. For treatment recovery, patients can relax in “The Comfort Cave”, a quiet enclave with Tobacco-gray reclaimed barn wood, muted-gray walls, plush leather recliner, soft-lit, sofitted ceiling, and nothing the relaxing sound of ocean waves.
