More About Dr. Sadeghi

When Payman Sadeghi, MD opened his first Headache Institute in Houston, Texas, he implemented a very definite philosophy about how he would treat all of his patients: he would be compassionate about their individual medical situations, sensitive to the root causes of their problems and very case specific about the treatments to be administered to each individual.

“The people who come to us have tried everything,” he says. “I understand what you’re going through. We will listen to you and will find your problem and come up with a solution for you. It’s not the protocol or standard of care that’s out there. It’s customized and tailored to you. We’ve had great success with it.”

The philosophy has served Payman Sadeghi, MD well as he has expanded his Headache Institutes from Houston to South Florida and most recently, to New Jersey.

More than 6,000 patients have visited the three Institutes for treatment.

“We get them to a very good place, with no headache or very few headaches, with little or no medication,” he says. “That is very, very different from any other headache clinic in the country.”

Payman Sadeghi, MD’s progression toward his specialization in headache treatments started when he earned a degree in Biochemistry from the University of Ottawa in Canada. Thereafter, he elected to move in the direction of tropical medicine, a decision that took him to the Dominican Republic, where he earned his Medical Degree at Nordestana University in San Francisco de Macoris. He returned to Canada to complete his clinical rotation at the University of Montreal and McGill University.

A residency in Neurology at the University of Texas medical branch in Galveston inspired his growing interest in headache diagnosis and treatments. In 2005, he completed his residency and became an Assistant Professor at the university.

In 2005 and beyond, he completed an electromyography super fellowship, as well as many epilepsy and neuroimaging mini-fellowships.

Fluent in English, French, Spanish and Persian, he served as a clinical assistant professor at the University of Texas Medical Branch prior to joining the Memorial City Neurology and forming the Houston Headache Institute.

Payman Sadeghi, MD’s professional memberships include the Texas Medical Association, Florida Medical Association, American Headache Society, National Headache Foundation, Texas Neurological Society, American Academy of Neurology, and American Society of Neuroimaging.

In 2013, he expanded the Houston Headache Institute by establishing clinics in the Miami suburb of Coral Gables, Florida, and a co-partnership in South Plainfield, New Jersey. In 2016, Payman Sadeghi, MD founded National Stem Cell Clinic with a patent pending for regenerative medicine involving stem cell treatments for headaches.
