Free classes for headache patients at Norton Neuroscience Institute
Headaches can interfere with patients’ daily lives in big and small ways. For providers, headache disorders can be difficult to diagnose and treat.
“Patients who have more knowledge of their condition are generally going to have better success with treatment,” said Norton Neuroscience Institute headache specialist, Brian M. Plato, D.O.
Often times, patients seek out information online — but their search results are not always reliable.
