The Blue Ridge Headache Center will be closing its Asheville location as of April 15, 2014. I will be re-locating in Chapel Hill. Details to follow.
The Blue Ridge Headache Center is the only medical clinic in western North Carolina devoted to the treatment of headache.
The Blue Ridge Headache Center offers a comprehensive range of services, including traditional medical evaluation and treatment, complementary and alternative medicine, psychological evaluation and treatment, injectable medicines for use at home, nerve blocks, and Botox for the treatment of chronic migraine.
Our office is convenient to Asheville and Hendersonville, serving Buncombe County, Hendersonville County, all of western North Carolina and upper South Carolina, and the people of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
A testimonial: "I used to think of myself as a problem patient, but not anymore. I am astonished how much my quality-of-life has improved."
