The Dr. John H. Kreeft Headache Clinic at University Hospital is dedicated to the diagnosis and management of patients with complicated headache or facial pain problems.

The Clinic participates in trials for the prevention and treatment of headache. The treatment of complicated headaches and facial pain requires a wide array of diagnostic and therapeutic measures. The initial team that assesses patients with complicated headache consists of a nurse, who reviews the patient's history and a neurologist who analyses the history with the nurse and then examines the patient and then with the patient agrees upon an initial diagnostic and therapeutic plan.
