Dr. Hedges has worked with me to stop severe headaches due to a pinched nerve at C1. She is competent, empathetic and never too rushed to listen.

I appreciate the fact that I never feel rushed when I visit. She takes the time to truly listen and, if necessary, push behind the façade I might present in order to see what is really going on. She is also open to listening to ideas I might have and takes the time to answer any questions.

If you want an office with helpful, courteous, knowledgeable people, use Midwest Neuroscience Institute. My doctor, Kathryn Hedges, MD, always takes the time to listen and talk with me (not at me and not listen). Questions are answered so that I understand them. Treatment is explained and why.

Dr. Hedges has a calming presence that keeps me calm. She is very smart and knows her career field. When I ask her about some new development that might help me she usually has knowledge of it and gives me her opinion. Above all she is a nice caring person.
