Need migraine doctor in Houston, TX

I am in desperate need of a migraine specialist in Houston, TX. The trouble is, I’ve lived here for 35 years — with migraines — and have tried quite a few of them. There ARE good physicians around, but trying to get in to see one it’s at least a 3 to 4 months waiting list. Could you help, please?

The issue became crucial when I had an accident about 2 weeks ago. I’ve had non-stop migraines since then. My own neurologist only works 2 1/2 days/week and could not see me until April. The emergency room doctor ran all the tests, thank goodness everything came up negative. But he didn’t have any good leads for a migraine specialist, either. I tried to find other migraine doctors on the web — with all of them it’s at least a 3 months wait. Some others don’t accept Aetna. Does ANYBODY have any ideas?

I’m living on Maxalt right now because my head hurts badly as soon as one Maxalt wears off. I know that cannot be good, but what to do? On top of that, Aetna will only let me have 9 pills/month, and my regular neurologist cannot be bothered to call Aetna and make them increase the prescription.

    I’ve seen Dr Randolph Evans in Houston on Binz St. I live in Victoria & I have been referred to him several occasions by my neurologist. Dr Evans is a bit dry on patient side of things but is very smart & I’ve never waited more than a couple of weeks to get in. Good Luck…..

    I’ve seen Dr. Evans before, based on a mention of his name on this site. I found him to be anywhere from bored to rude, as if I was imposing on his time. I think that’s the problem with a lot of the neurologists: they know they can’t “fix” a migraine, so they wish we’d just shut up and go away.
    Had a terrible time over Christmas with daily migraines. My regular neurologist called the insurance company to authorize more than the standard 9 Maxalt/month, but they didn’t do it. NOT a good vacation.
    I finally got in to see the regular neurologist this afternoon. Can’t imagine what she’s going to do that we haven’t done before. I’m a CPA and looking at tax season — with daily migraines.
