I have had headaches since I was a young boy with migraines often ending up in bed for several hours and vomiting. I gradually was personal from these only occasionally experiencing them about once in a four month period. After hitting the age of 50 they reappeared more often and past my 60’s very often. Into my 70’s I experienced them every day or so. Not just migraines, but cluster headaches also. I first saw an advertisement on TV for the Doolin Haddad headache clinic advertising they have had success with people suffering from headaches. I first went to them in the fall of 2007 and Dr. Haddad worked with me. It has been over a year now and the last few months I have not had prescription medicine only about 6 times a month, which is considerably less than before where I would take medication almost every other day and sometimes every day. I know I will not be completely personal of these headaches but I am quite satisfied with the results from Dr. Haddad.
For 10 months (Nov 2007 – Aug 2008) I suffered with chronic headaches on one side of my head (right), ringing and hearing loss in my right ear. I had sought assistance from 9 different doctors, had taken several tests, and was put on a number of drugs with little or no success. When I was referred to Dr. Haddad’s office I was very frustrated and concerned I would have to spend the rest of my life on medication. My quality of life was miserable.
In July of 2008 Dr. Haddad met with me, and asked me a lot of questions about by health, medical and dental history. He very carefully explained what he thought was the problem and why he felt it was the cause of the pain I had been experiencing. What he told me made sense. He prescribed a dental orthotic for my mouth. He explained the process of creating the orthotic, the treatment I would receive to ensure proper alignment, how I was to where it the orthotic, how long he felt it might take to see results as well as the cost involved.
In Sept 2008 Dr. Haddad gave me my new orthotic and changed my prescription to a non-narcotic drug. Over the next two months I started feel better and was able to decrease the drug dosage in half. By Dec of 2008, I was off of the drugs and was only experiencing mild headaches occasionally that could be treated with regular aspirin.
I am a happy person, able to function at home and at work and without the use of drugs. I still wear my orthotic 24/7 to see if continued use will help improve my hearing and ringing I continue to have in my right ear.
I would highly recommend the services provided by Dr. Haddad and his staff to anyone who suffers from chronic headaches.
I was having daily pain in my jaw and could only open my mouth a little making eating difficult. Headaches were daily. Then my daughter, who is a dental assistant for another office, recommended me to Dr. Haddad.
His staff was friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. Dr. Haddad and his assistant made me feel very comfortable and made sure I understood my procedure.
Now my mouth opens personally and my headaches have decreased significantly.
I will recommend Dr. Haddad and his office to all of my friends and family.

Everything is done with the latest technology/equipment. My treatment has allowed me to once again live life to the fullest without the migraines and jaw pain that ruled my life daily. I would definitely recommend family, friends and others to this practice for all their dental needs- cosmetic and structural!
