What is NOT included in the Complete Diagnosis™ ?
Brain scans and blood tests are not included because they are almost never necessary, and they are very expensive too. The neurological examination done on you will indicate if the brain scan is necessary or not.
The cost of treatment is not included. We can only provide a quotation for treatment once we have accurately diagnosed the cause of your pain.
How does payment for Complete Diagnosis™ work?
- The diagnosis fee must be paid to us directly and claimed back from your medical aid if you have one.
- You can use your medical aid to cover the cost of x-rays at diagnosis.

What about Medical Aid?
- Except for x-rays, The Headache Clinic will NOT accept medical aid for the payment for Complete Diagnosis™. X-rays CAN be claimed from the medical aid.
- Once we have made a Complete Diagnosis™, we can contact your medical aid and confirm benefits to help you make an informed treatment decision.
