"THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to you, Dr. Grubbs, and your wonderful team. Amazing care (plus patience with my anxiety) and the results made me feel normal again and even better than before!"

I. S., Venice, FL


"The best care I have received pre and post op. Wendy and Valorie are shining examples. I know what I'm talking about, I have 5 nurses in my family. Kudos to them. I had a fight on my hands, my employer is self-insured and would not help with the procedure that was best for me. Valorie and Wendy made my fight with prostate cancer a dream and renewed my faith in people. Thank you."

"Three and a half years ago, at the age of 36, I suffered a stroke behind my right eye. As a result, I developed Complex Migraine Syndrome. At the time, my wife was working for a local neurology group. She immediately got me in to be seen, and I was sent for an MRI. Over the next few years, we tried every medication (except the triptans due to my high risk for stroke), Botox, acupuncture and anything else the doctor suggested. Nothing relieved my migraine pain. I was suffering from 3-5 migraines a week, often accompanied by right sided weakness and facial droop. I was working nights and going to school full time at the onset, but after a year my doctor urged me to quit my night job and take a medical leave from school (neither were options my wife and I wanted to have happen), because he assured me these things were "triggering" my migraines. Needless to say, I did both and there was no change in my pain. Eventually I felt as though the doctor pretty much gave up on me. It was so depressing and debilitating to think I would have to spend the rest of my life living with constant migraine pain.

On Super Bowl Sunday, my family was relaxing at home watching the game when I noticed a friend of ours posted a video on Facebook of a Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block being done at a clinic in NY. I showed it to me wife and she went on the internet and found that your office was offering this procedure in nearby Sarasota. I called the next day and was able to get in to see Dr. Grubbs that same week. After the consultation and CT scan, he declared that I was a good candidate for the procedure. The next Wednesday, my wife and I drove to Sarasota Interventional Radiology. I had a migraine when I went back for the procedure. A short time later, my wife came back to the recovery area and said she was amazed at the transformation already--no more facial droop! And she could see that there was no pain in my face!

It has been 11 weeks so far, and I have been migraine free! I have my life back! I started a new job the week after my procedure and now I have the energy to do so many things I have been missing out on with my family. I am back in school and looking forward to continuing my academic career as well.

I am so appreciative to Dr. Grubbs and his staff-they were friendly, kind and accommodating. The procedure was quick and painless. I could not be more pleased with the results so far!

God bless you all!"
