The Michigan Headache and Neurology Clinic is a private neurology practice specializing in the treatment of adults and adolescents with all types of painful disorders of the head and face, including migraine, cluster, tension-type headaches, chronic daily headaches and facial pain disorders, including trigeminal neuralgia.
We are also known as The Michigan Headache Clinic®, part of Messina Neurology™.)
so we treat all types of common neurological illnesses.

We service all of Michigan and parts of surrounding states from our East Lansing location, welcoming patients who are referred by primary care and specialists as well as patients who refer themselves to manage headaches and other neurological problems. We Welcome Self Referrals.

The key to good healthcare is the people who deliver it. We bristle when we are called "providers" by insurance companies because it tends to depersonalize us. We strongly believe that individuals are not interchangeable, patient or doctor or nurse.

The key to the success of our clinic is teamwork.
This is our clinical team, click the pictures below for more information about each of us.


virtual visit


We have pioneered the use of electronic records since the 1980's and now we are the first headache clinic in Michigan to use telemedicine to manage patients, when appropriate, who we have seen at least once in person. Please click here for details about telemed visits. These visits are now covered by many insurors.


Please check out our videos about headache care at The Headache Situation to see how we approach headaches.


Rising healthcare costs for headache patients... we can help.

We are very sensitive to the direct and indirect costs to our patients, especially in this era of increased drug costs and often exorbitant insurance deductibles and co-pays.
