After being misdiagnosed by two other neurologists I finally found my way to Dr. Chou. After a thorough exam and reviewing my case she diagnosed me correctly with hemicrania continua. Shortly after being given the correct medication, my chronic migraines went away! I was told by the other neurologists, I will just have to deal with it. I can not thank her enough for giving me my life back. I highly recommend her to anyone I've met that has chronic migraines.
