I was having migraine after migraine and was at the end of my rope. I remembered reading that Botox might alleviate migraine pain. In my web searches, I found Glogau was the one who came up with this off-label treatment. He was very personable, his staff was pleasant, and he did an interesting thing of taking the rubber stopper off the vial of botox, so it would not dull the needle. That meant the shots were not as painful as shots usually are. That's the mark of someone who is observant and sympathetic. The treatment is very expensive, moreso than from a neurologist I went to a few years later, but it worked well for preventing migraines (in my case - it only works in 50% of the patients reporting) and had the interesting side effect of making my forehead smooth.
