Maimonides is proud to offer world-class Headache Medicine care, backed by our neurology team’s deep expertise and diagnostic capabilities.

Individualized, Holistic Care to Treat Headaches
Maimonides stands at the forefront of delivering the most effective, state-of-the-art headache treatments available. While many neurologists treat headaches, Dr. Choueka is fellowship-trained in headache medicine and is relentless in his pursuit of the most advanced and effective headache solutions.
“At Maimonides, we tailor each patient’s headache treatment to their needs,” says Dr. Choueka. “The team’s extensive training and experience uniquely equip us to diagnose and treat even the most complex cases.”
One of the hallmarks of Maimonides is our commitment to personalized care and our holistic approach. “It is essential to take a multidisciplinary approach and consider treatment and specialist referrals for these conditions,” explains Dr. Choueka.
Different types of headaches require different approaches, from tension headaches and migraines to cluster headaches and more. “That’s why we perform thorough evaluations and diagnostics for each patient,” Dr. Choueka says. “From there, we create tailored treatments designed to address each person’s unique needs and symptoms.”
Many migraine patients also have other health conditions that may play a role in exacerbating their headache condition, such as anxiety, depression, unmanaged sleep apnea and neck pain. Chronic dehydration and poor diet can also contribute to worsening headache symptoms.
