Very Grateful! “Botox treatment has helped me greatly with my headaches. I have very few headaches these days when before I had chronic headaches and migraines 4-5x per week. It interfered with every part of my life. Now I barely have 1 headache a month. I’m very grateful to have found Dr. Sevilla.” Sincerely, Brenda T - 7/25/12 ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **
Headache Free “Before botox treatments I woke up every morning with a headache. These would range form tolerable but mostly extreme pain. I experienced migraines so sever I would be in bed for several days. I couldn’t tolerate light, sounds, or odors. Since botox I wake up every morning headache free and have a normal life. I no longer have to worry when a headache will hit or how severe it will be.” Sincerely, Shelia C. - 7/25/12 ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **

It could work for you! “My whole life I’ve had headaches that have affected my social life. When I was 26 yrs old I discovered with help of Dr. Sevilla that there was hope. Dr. Sevilla has been treating my father for many years and now it was my turn for relief. After one treatment of Botox my headaches have been reduced from 15 a month to 2 or 3. I have yet to miss a day of work or miss out on a social event since the treatment. Botox is working for me and it could work for you.” Sincerely, Robert S. - 7/25/12 ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **
My life has changed! “Back in spring I read through the testimonials on a visit to see Dr. Sevilla and I wondered could this really be that good? Yes! I call it a miracle. I have suffered from migraines since I was 16 years old. They were just part of my life- or non-life some days. I would be physically sick from the paid and lose 12 hours with every episode. I tried to find patterns but nothing. I was resolved to home daily/weekly tension headaches with a chance of everyone turning into a rehabilitating migraine. After one treatment the headaches are gone! Not better- but gone! Dr. Sevilla and Botox have really changed my life. Thank You!!!” Sincerely, Elizabeth S. - 7/25/12 ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **
“Botox has greatly reduced my swelling around shoulders and clamed muscle spasms.” Sincerely, MF - 7/25/12 ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **
Forever Grateful “I had been having migraines for 7 years and about 4 a week when I showed up in Dr. Sevilla’s office. The first neurologist I saw wouldn’t even discuss botox as a possible solution, so I was a little nervous because I didn’t want to be on a lot of medications. After the first year my headaches dropped to one a week and at 2 years down to 2 a month. My headaches would come at 3am and so I never had enough sleep and felt nauseated all the time. My friends even bought me eye cream for under eye circles! Dr. Sevilla listened to my needs and goals and has given me my life back. I am forever grateful for her care and help.” Sincerely, Pamela - 8/1/12 ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **
Severe Migraines "For fifteen years I have had severe migraines at least four times a week. I tried all of the medications, but none of them worked. My life was terrible. I missed out on my children’s ball games, recitals, family life, enjoying friends because of the pain of migraines. Since having botox treatments I feel like a butterfly that has been freed from a very constricting cocoon. I’m enjoying my family and friends and I have returned to college! My goal is to finish my master’s degree and become a Physicians Assistant. None of this would have been possible without Dr. Sevilla and botox." Sincerely, Shelley P - 7/3/12 ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **
Changed My Life "Before starting botox therapy my neck hurt so much that I couldn’t sleep and I was always in pain. I could not turn my head to even back up a vehicle. It was affecting my on the job work performance to the point that I took early retirement. I have just taken my 4th round of botox therapy and my neck had greatly improved. I am practically pain free in the right side of my neck. The left side is much better but still restricts movement to some degree and has some pain and soreness. Overall I fell the botox therapy has changed my life greatly". Sincerely, Bonnie - 2/8/2012 ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **
Thank You! For decades I suffered from massive migraines that affected my family life and my work limiting my productivity due to my absences. Doctors tried every medication under the sun including narcotics to treat me. It came to a point were I gave up, I was depressed, had no life. Migraines took my pride and my humanity away. Until one day my beautiful and wonderful wife read a subject in a magazine about botox treatments. My family doctor directed me to Dr. Sevilla for treatment. She explained that treatment and what to expect through her knowledge and demeanor turned this skeptic into a believer. After my first treatment and following instructions I got my life back. The constant pain is gone". Sincerely, Hussein B -1/10/12 ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **
Night and Day! "After a car wreck and neck injury I begun having headaches like nothing I ever felt before. They were debilitating and would last an entire day then leave me with a headache. “Hangover” Months of therapy for the neck didn’t stop them. The world didn’t stop either, I still had to work and be a mom regardless. The migraines were weekly and took two days out of the week. I was taking handfuls of over the counter medicines to get until it begun to affect my stomach. I came here as a referral to get off of OTC medicine. It’s a miracle. I can’t imagine life without it now. I don’t know how I got through before. The quality of life I have now is like night and day compared to before botox. Sincerely, Stacey D. - 8/30/11 ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **
Dr. Sevilla, thank you for giving me my life back after years of almost daily neck and headache pain.

"I have lived with migraines for 30 years. The last doctor I saw had me down to about 3 headaches a month. When I told Dr. Sevilla she said that number of headaches is unacceptable. Ive been seeing Dr. Sevilla for about 8 months and I have had only 1 headache. This has truly been life changing, I am happier and finally loosing weight. It had changed my life. Thank you Dr. Sevilla". - Wendy - 4/1/09 ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **
"I have suffered with migraine headaches for over 30 years. They started out episodic and gradually increased in frequency until I had a headache almost everyday. Obviously, I felt terrible and my quality of life was poor. The only medication that gave me any relief was Imitrex and I was taking way too much of it. Botox has been my miracle. I was injected 3 times. The 1st time it helped a few weeks. The 2nd time it helped longer. The 3rd time seems to have finally broken the headache pattern once and for all. It has been 13 months since my last injection. Now I have a headache approximately once every two months. They are not as bad either. This has made a huge difference in my life. Now! I can do anything I want without having to worry about a headache or whether I have any medication available. I’ve also been able to start exercising and improve my health overall".

"I have had chronic pain for years and thought it was something I had to live with. Within 15 mins, after the 1st injections I begin to feel the tension ease.

"Looking at pictures from May, the difference is amazing. Every picture has a pain expression. I was losing my wife and thought I was helpless to do anything about it. I have nothing but praise for Dr. Sevilla and the procedure". CPA -12/2007 ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **
"Before a combination of botox therapy and office visits with Dr. Sevilla, I was taking 3 Imitrex tablets daily for migraine and head pain. Now I can say I am totally free from taking any triptans". Pam Ray - 4/10/07 ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **
"Before coming to the Headache & Wellness Clinic, I was having 12-14 headaches per month. Almost 1/3 of my life was spent with a headache. After beginning medication, I was able to manage the headaches a little better, but was still having about 8-10 per month. When Dr. Sevilla recommended Botox, I was unsure about the procedure, due to the cost. Now that I’ve had the Botox and reduced my headaches to once a month, I wonder why I ever worried about the cost. The botox has changed how I function, since I am no longer hurting or in a haze from strong narcotics. I am so thankful for headache free these days". Lana - 4/9/07 ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **

"Nine months were stolen from my life, due to migraines. Everyday migraines, After Botox my husband got his wife back my children got their mother back, I got my life back. With Botox along with medication, I am in debt to Dr. Sevilla. Her knowledge and skills addressed my nine month torture almost immediately. I can now function with the quality of life I had before migraines. Dr. Sevilla gave me hope that she could solve my problem and she certainly did. I LOVE HER DEARLY!!!"

"I am 70 years old and for over 50 years, I have had severe headaches. Two car accidents had left me seeing neurologists and chiropractors, which could not elevate the headaches. After seeing Dr. Sevilla August 30, 2006 she administered 30 Botoxs injections in 15 minutes. I could turn my head up and down, also turn my neck. What a wonderful feeling. Also no headache! I also have nerve damage. November 29, 2006 I had another series of injections since then I have not had to see the chiropractor, no more severe headaches. We don’t know how long these will work but I just thank my good friend for telling me about Dr. Sevilla and GOD for Dr. Sevilla’s great knowledge and expertise to know how to administer these injections. So great to feel good, I feel these Botox shots have given me a new look on life. Thank You". Janice W. - 2/1/07 - ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **
"Dr. Sevilla’s botox migraine treatment has given me my life back! I have gone from having a headache every day to rarely having one. While the migraine medications worked well for me and relieved my headaches within about 40 minutes they left me a bit foggy. I can’t risk being foggy in my line of work. Besides, migraine medication even when covered by insurance is EXPENSIVE! With botox I no longer worry about whether every little thing I do or eat is going to give me a headache. I’m free to enjoy each day to the fullest. Thank You Dr. Sevilla". Law Enforcement - 2/26/07 - ** Hand Written Testimonial on File **
"I had chronic headaches for five years, it started in 2001 and I went to my medical doctor, who tried me on several medicines with no relief. I was sent to ENT doctor who treated me for one year, but I still had my headaches and wasn’t getting any better. I went back to my medical doctor who made me an appointment with a allergy doctor. After seeing the allergist they referred us to Dr. Sevilla. After seeing Dr. Sevilla and explaining all that I have been thru and the medicines I’ve taken, she told me about a new treatment that would take away the headaches by using Botox injections. I said at that point I was willing to try anything. So gave the ok to try this new procedure and I’m so thankful that we did because I’m headache free after five years of having a headache everyday".

"Dr. Sevilla's BOTOX migraine treatment has given me my life back! I have gone from having a headache nearly everyday to rarely having one ... With BOTOX, I no longer worry about whether every little thing I do or eat is going to give me a headache. I'm free to enjoy each day to the fullest" - Law Enforcement Officer
"I am so thankful I found you, I only wish it had been sooner. I appreciate you listening to me, I appreciate your concern, and I appreciate that you really truly care. Thank you for giving me my life back, thank you for giving me back my will to live instead of just existing. And most importantly, thank you for loving what you do. All doctors should use you as an example. I hold you in high regard." -
"Will you please tell Dr. Sevilla thank you for me? I am absolutely AMAZED at the difference I have seen in you since she started treating you! Your posture, your expression, your whole outlook has drastically improved ... I am so grateful to her recommendation that you do this treatment that has succeeded where so many other things, including surgery has failed. I have my mom back and it is a blessing!" - Patient's son
"Looking at pictures from May, the difference is amazing. Every old picture has a pained expression. I was losing my wife and thought I was helpless to do anything about it. I have nothing but praise for Dr. Sevilla and the procedure." - Patient's husband
"With a combination of BOTOX injections and constantly monitored medications, Dr. Sevilla has managed to give me my life back ... The initial cost of the treatment may seem expensive. However, it is actually much cheaper than out of pocket prescriptions, E.R. visits, time lost at work, etc. And the ability to lead a normal and pain free life - as the commercial says "Priceless". I would encourage anyone with chronic migraines to strongly consider the BOTOX treatments." - J.W.
Results may vary depending on the patient's psychological make-up, the length of time the headache, cervical dystonia, neck pain had been present, and other underlying medical problems.
Allergic reaction to BOTOX, although rare and had not been encountered in our patient population, may occur.
As of June 2010, the use of BOTOX for chronic headaches is considered an off-label use. Ongoing clinical studies continue for FDA approval. Our own clinical experience overwhelmingly supports the effectivity and safety of its use in chronic headaches.
