How was your experience with your patient coordinator?
My patient coordinator Mary was absolutely amazing! At times I had to call day after day because I was having problems with my insurance or I caught her after she left office or whatever the case may have been, I always felt like I was that patient that nagged or always called but she always was calm and collected and answered everything with ease and reassured me that I was no problem at all. If there are more people at Migraine Treatment Centers like Mary, then I know that anyone that goes there for support from a coordinator and get treatment, I know they are in good hands!

How was your experience with your doctor?
I have seen many doctors because of my condition and none of them have had the humor, the ease, and the genuine level of comfort I was able to have with Dr. Shuayto. Even my family enjoyed him despite the long venture from Battle Creek to Port Huron. Most of his office staff were equally professional. They were by far the best doctors I have had yet through my medical journey.

Pre-Surgery Condition/Lifestyle:
My life, what life? I was a 21 year old who couldn’t do anything a 21 year could do; the pain was devastating. Words truly cannot express the egregious struggle I’ve gone through. Not just pain, financial struggles, emotional stress, social problems. Every single aspect of my life was affected and there was nothing I could do. It’s extremely demoralizing when you exhaust everything in your arsenal to get the help you need and you never leave square one but you’ve gone through a lot of hoops.

Post-Surgery Condition/Outcome:
I can happily say, I have not suffered a migraine since March of this year! I never thought I would ever be free of those, it’s eerie, but in a good way. To be conditioned to something for so long and then for them to be gone, words can’t express how happy I am. I still have headaches and of course the Omega Procedure does nothing for back pains but the migraines were the most destructive thing I endured and now that’s out of the way. I can focus of knocking out the other problems and finally start doing the things a 24 year old does!
[I’m able to] hold a full time job for more than a month! I mean my life has 100% changed and changed for the better!
