I suffer from chronic headache and migraine. Dr. Larsen is compassionate, innovative, knowledgeable, caring and personable. He is a one-man office, yet always has time to help. He keeps up-to-date on new treatments and has never given up on me. I am lucky to have found him.

As a patient of Dr. Larsen's for the past four years, I can honestly say that he is one of the best migraine doctors I've seen. He listens to my needs and concerns and has worked to help find a treatment plan that works best for me. Very knowledgeable and committed to his patient's care!

After my doctor retired tried a couple doctors in the area Dr Larsen will try to find a cure but after 30 years I just wanted pain control , He does not give many pills so you get charged $ 25 for a RX refill.. I went to pain clinic and this worked out better for me hey I'm 68 years old and years of finding a cure is a waste... with right pain medicine every day is perfect... so look to a pain management clinic for help...

In the fall of 2015, I was seriously ill with multiple symptoms including optical migrane, but also cardiac & neurological symptoms. After several ER visits, subspecialists, & symptoms worsening, I found Dr. Larsen. It took some time, but he got me back on my feet! Migraine is a journey. Work with Dr. Larsen...he will help you! Very strict office policies, but they are upfront about them & will remind you with every appt.

I have been struggling with chronic migraines for sometime now and it has been really difficult, especially being a young adult going to school. Dr. Larsen has been incredible in helping me figure out ways to manage my migraines and continue on with my daily life.

Dr. Larsen is a blessing to those of us with chronic migraines/headaches. He is persistent and does not give up on his patients. He takes the time to educate you on the treatment options and really understands what his patients go through. He also stays on top of new medications and protocols.

The best neurologist out there who actually cares about his patients because his own daughter suffers horribly from chronic daily migraines. Such a compassionate person. I thank God for this amazing man and tell everyone about him!!!

I absolutely love this doctor. He has been honest and really understands patients who suffer from migraines. He has been systematically able to weed through my symptoms and needs and has changed my ability to live my life more fully while managing my headache pain.

I've been a patient of Dr. Larsen's of over 10 years and he has been an absolute lifesaver. He takes the time to listen to all of your worries and questions to treat you both medically and as a person.

Dr Larsen has helped me tremendously for the past four years with my chronic migraines. His treatment plan has brought me so much relief it truly allows me to have a life again. Doctor Larsen's knowledge and compassion for what he does makes him a excellent physician. Appointments are normally very timely except on a rare occasion and is usually because he is helping a patient who is in need, I have been there in terrible pain so I can appreciate the extra time he took with them.

Dr. Larsen and his staff always listened right off the bat. Dr. Larsen really tries to solve your migraines or at least make them manageable. I thought I would never go back to regular daily living and now I am back in school. The last neurologist I saw didn't even consider migraines. The wait time can be very long depending on the day and time of our appointment.

The wait can be long for some of the procedures but he has provided me with alternatives and changed my life in one month which other doctors were unable to do in over 1 year. If you have seen other doctors and got no results for unusual migraine symptoms from other doctors I would highly recommend seeing him.
