ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE MICHIGAN HEADACHE AND NEUROLOGY CLINIC
January 11, 2023
As you may already know, our practice has been closed since the end of December 2022.
As I have indicated in recent months, we decided to retire, leaving a very different healthcare environment from when we first opened in 1981. Over these 41 years, Jayne and I have endeavored to serve our patients without any external corporate influence from hospitals, drug companies, or insurance companies. We are proud of that record.
For questions related to billing, you may reach Christina at extension #101, Monday through Thursday from 9AM to 2PM or leave a message. Remember, we have sent progress notes to your primary care providers and specialists for decades. So they should already have a complete record of our visits and test results. As of January 2023, the medical records custodian is Desert River Solutions .
As previously stated, any outstanding labs, or other testing, ordered by our office that was not completed and received here prior to our office closing must be followed up by your primary care physician or new neurologist taking over your care. Make sure you contact the testing facility to make sure all results are sent to your primary care as well as your new neurologist. Please follow up with them soon.
Our wonderful Nurse Practitioner, Katelyn D'Onofrio, has left on maternity leave and no longer is part of our practice, since we are closing. When she decides where and when to return to practice, we will announce her location on our website. We hope she will continue what we have begun; we will miss her collaboration with us and the rest of our team.
Please know that we have valued seeing you as a patient. We have treated some of you for many decades, and we will miss you all. Please check our website from time to time for changes and updates.

We will continue our podcast channel at A Doctor and a Nurse Navigate to help people get through the complex and sometimes misleading information on medical websites.
