Comprehensive Headache Center

Welcome to the interdisciplinary Comprehensive Headache Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC). If you are one of the estimated 60 to 80 million people in the United States who endure recurring headaches, you have come to the right place. Our commitment to extraordinary, compassionate patient care is evident from the moment you enter our state-of the art facility at One Brookline Place in Brookline.



Designed specifically for those who suffer from headaches, the shades are drawn, lights are dim, and soft, soothing music plays in the background. A "fragrance-free zone" sign hanging from the receptionist's desk greets you. Beautiful photographs of nature line the hallway on the way to spacious, comfortable exam rooms.

Led by nationally-renowned headache medicine specialist Carolyn Bernstein, MD, and internationally acclaimed headache researcher Rami Burstein, PhD, our staff knows that too many headache patients are misunderstood and needlessly suffer. Whether you are experiencing what may be migrainescluster headaches or tension headaches, our highly skilled and dedicated team understands it can be a challenge for the proper diagnosis, and ultimately, treatment. You can count on us to work together toward that goal. After a patient receives the correct diagnosis, pain relief and management will follow.

With our integrated, holistic approach to treatment, focus on prevention, and clinical and research facility clearly created for the headache patient, the Comprehensive Headache Center at BIDMC fills an important need in the community. We believe every patient should have the opportunity to get relief from headache pain. Our team of headache specialists will make every effort to ensure that your journey for relief ends here.
