Below are letters and comments that MHNI has received from some of its patients following their treatment at the Institute.
"This is to let you know how grateful I am to you and to say that for the last few months I have begun living. Thanks to you, for the first time in nearly 40 years I'm able to plow ahead and participate."
--C.T., Sarasota, Florida
"You have my heartfelt gratitude and deepest thanks....I have had no headaches since I have been home. Thanks for your wonderful care and concern."
--C.S., Lima, Ohio
"Since I left the Institute, my headaches have steadily lessened in intensity, and there are now periods each day that are virtually pain-free for me. This is such a marvelous improvement. It has really made my life so very much better."
--M.B., Laramie, Wyoming
"I want to express my sincere appreciation for your treatment, help, and kind caring. You and your staff were highly competent and caring, and the treatment and guidance received were excellent. My son says that his headache has now ceased for the first time in the last year and that he is again experiencing and thoroughly enjoying a sense of wellness and normality."
--A.M., Charlotte, North Carolina
"Thank you for all of your love and support. You are all so very special to me! It's been a pretty tough year for me, as you know. Your wonderful care got me through. I can't thank you enough."
--L.F., Kalamazoo, Michigan
"Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all your help. I've been home nearly a week and haven't had one #5 headache. I don't know what I would have done if it hadn't been for your clinic."
--V.L., Manteno, Illinois
"Thank you so much for turning what could have been a highly stressful visit into a reassuring and helpful realization that I don't have to live with chronic pain. I will recommend MHNI every chance I get. It's good to know you're only a phone call away."
--T.S., St. Joseph, Michigan
"My life has been changed here. I never thought I'd be out of pain -- or almost out of pain. I thank you with so very much gratitude."
--P.M., Schoolcraft, Michigan
"I want to thank you so very much for your clinic and knowledge with migraine headaches as well as all other types of headaches. I just don't know the proper words to express to you how I feel. I never realized how debilitating the headaches were until I didn't have them every day. I'm so very grateful for what you have done, not just for me but also for my family."
--C.L., Juneau, Alaska
"Where do I begin and what can I say to express my gratitude and humble thanks. I became headache-free...first time since adolescence. As a boy I thought everyone hurt when they ran hard or jumped. I did not know the difference. So you can only imagine my surprise when not only did I not have a migraine, I had no head pain of any kind. Remarkable. Your clinic and head pain unit at Chelsea cannot be topped. Not only have you restored me, you have changed me into a happy, better person, a discovery in life for the first time!"
--M.G., Gowen, Michigan
"Everyone I have come in contact with (doctors, nurses, volunteers, etc.) has been outstanding. I was treated with the utmost respect and kind hospitality that I haven't felt anywhere else that I've been. The nurses offered more than their knowledge and expertise....They offered themselves."
--J.B., Lake Zurich, Illinois
"Thanks from the bottom of my heart for everything. Keep up the good job you are all doing."
--D.M.S., Saginaw, Michigan
"I would like to take this opportunity to officially thank you for the wonderful care that I received during this short time that I consulted with you in regard to my neurological symptoms at MHNI. In many cases because of the "mysterious" nature of my symptoms and no clear cause or cure to my illness, I have not been well received by much of the medical community and really appreciated the seriousness, thoughtfulness, and care that was given to me at MHNI. I really felt understood, that you truly cared about my predicament, and that you were very conscientious in responding to my needs. This really meant a lot to me because in the past I was either not taken seriously by health care providers or if I was, no treatment was available. And finally I would like to commend you on your good "customer service" skills. It is clear to me that you not only want to provide quality health care but also offer it at a competitive cost with flexible scheduling and payment options."
--C.W., Ann Arbor, Michigan
"A short note of gratitude to your staff for their quick diagnosis of my cluster headache problem. My various physicians have been treating this as a sinus problem since age 18. After a thorough exam at your facility, medication was prescribed, and I have not had a recurrence...."
--T.M., Northville, Michigan
"From the receptionist, to the nursing staff, to the phone nurse, to the lab techs, to the doctors, I have always felt as if I have been given the utmost respect, care, and compassion that I, as a migraine patient, deserve. Many health care professionals could take some important lessons from you at MHNI. A job well done to you all!!!" --G.P., Holland, Ohio
"I know my headache condition probably gives you a 'headache' at times, but I want to thank you for not giving up on me. I just want you to know how much you are appreciated."
--N.D., Livonia, Michigan
"My life has just been saved! For some time I have unsuccessfully battled totally disabling, daily head pain and lost all hope. Life had become worthless. But at the Michigan Headache & Neurological Institute a control for my chronic severe head pain disorder was found."
--D.V., Naples, Florida
"I wanted to write and thank you for the kind, considerate, caring way you treated my sister. Your entire staff is wonderful. I think the way you involve the entire family is so helpful. Thank you once again for your diligence and care. Keep up the fantastic work."
--P.B., Battle Creek, Michigan
"I can honestly say that I feel like a new person. My mood has changed a great deal, and I am finally beginning to lead a normal life again. I thank you very much for the way I feel. I feel very fortunate that I was able to be in your head pain program. This has changed the rest of my life, so I will never forget it."
--C.F., Madison, Wisconsin
"I want to thank you all for your kindness and understanding. I realize I am a challenging patient -- but felt very fortunate that you would share your time and wisdom so graciously. I feel about 100% better...Thank you for not giving up on me."
--K.B., Wahpeton, North Dakota
"I would like to express my gratitude for the exceptional quality of care that has been offered to my wife these past several months. The thoroughness of your approach to patient care, coupled with your understanding of the impact that chronic pain can have on the quality of one's life, has for the first time given my wife and I a glimmer of hope for her future."
--CT, Ann Arbor, Michigan
"Thanks for your caring, compassionate knowledge! I can honestly say I've had my first (I hope of many) pain-free days. Thanks for everything."
--V.R., Jackson, Michigan
"It's been almost two years without headaches..."

--K.B., Romulus, Michigan
