“We all know that migraine is a very common disorder of the nervous system. It's often under-recognized and also undertreated. . .Sometimes we think, “Oh, it's just a headache. It's no big deal,” but migraine is very different from just a routine headache.” -Jessica Ailani

She specializes in the treatment of patients with migraine, cluster headache, tension headache, post-traumatic headache, occipital neuralgia, and concussion-related headache. Dr. Ailani has served as an investigator of several clinical trials developing novel treatments for migraine.

“Many folks have taken on the stigma of migraine. I think as migraine providers, we have to remove that. We have to talk about how to get their life back. This is something that is treatable, and we can help them to live life the way they want to.’ -Calli Cook
