I have suffered from chronic headaches for a long time. I'd had it with doctors just giving me pain relievers and not really getting to the root of the problem. Dr. Yao took a great deal of time listening to my concerns and together with me deciding on the best treatment. Best of all my headaches have significantly decreased!
