Headache & Facial Pain Program


The Headache and Facial Pain Program at Hoag offers a multidisciplinary approach to headache treatment. The goal of the program is to simultaneously address medical, physical and emotional needs, with a major focus on patient education. Patients are evaluated by our headache specialty physicians and a customized plan is developed, which includes experts in the fields of physical therapy, nutrition, biofeedback, cognitive behavioral therapy and acupuncture.


The team is led by Philip O’Carroll, M.D., and includes Ali Makki, DMD. The nurse navigator for the program is Sheena Dhiman, BSN, MBA.
