I found the Dr. and staff personable and professional. It was reassuring to have someone listening who has had experience with headaches. I felt comforted that we were going to get some answers and I think we have. I look forward to living a normal life, not limited by headaches. Thank you for everything you have done. .

Everyone has been knowledgeable and helpful. Everyone is so positive. I have had chronic non stop headaches for 7 years, I am almost pain free. I am excited to get back to my life and to participate with my children.

Doctor Saper was very attentive. He listened and tried to answer all questions to best of his ability. Given the nature of the inpatient experience, it could be helpful to see the doctor on a more frequent basis. It sometimes feels as though we as patients are frantically trying to squeeze in all our questions into the short period of time we have in the morning during rounds. This can be stressful. Overall, the rest of the staff was competent. Certain nurses provided better care than others. I would also encourage MHNI and its office at the Hospital to communicate better re: patient medical records. There were times when my past medical records were not available to the doctors in rounds, but they were back at MHNI.

Business Response:

We appreciate your comments. Dr. Saper and his team spend morning rounds with each patient individually, giving each patient as much time as the case requires. Dr. Saper customarily asks, before the meeting with each patient is over, if there are any questions that have not been answered. If the answer is yes, he willingly provides the time for questions to be answered. The meetings are direct “facetime” by the patient with the physician and if the patient needs more time, then more time is provided, within reason of course. Most of the support staff have been with Dr. Saper for many years and provide all patients who enter the program with experience and knowledgeable support.

Dr Saper is an amazing Dr. He tries many different methods and listens to patients advice. He works well with what we say.

My doctor in the hospital was Dr. Saper, whereas my clinic doctor was Dr. Winetrum. Both were concerned about my health and wanted me to have optimal care. All options were on the table.

Everything was superb with the exception of the first night. Since one can expect extreme nausea with OTC , something other than an oral anti-nausea medication would have made the let down a lot smoother. Other than that, my visit exceeded my expectations. My every need was met and the all the staff have the patience of saints. Every procedure was explained in detail and I knew I was in the best headache facility in the country. I am leaving here a new woman.

They saved my life. ALL the staff was wonderful and caring! Dealing with migraines for 41 years has been a nightmare BUT no longer! 9 neck surgeries later I am leaving with pain relief. With my neck being a mess and the pain so severe when I came in, I see a ray of sunshine in my life now!

Dr. Saper has been very informative about my care. I am impressed with the ' if it does not work, move on to the next thing' I was experiencing daily episodes (20-60) of excruciating pain. My job was at risk, my family was suffering as much as was. Today as I am being discharged the episodes are down to 3 yesterday. I am excited about going home and getting back to my family and routine. I would recommend MHNI for anyone experiencing chronic head pain. The staff is phenomenal, the care exceptional.

Business Response:

There are several gatherings for patients each week but it is usually voluntary and often determined by the mix of patients that are in the hospital at that time. Patients frequently gather in one of the meeting rooms at night and often have a variety of different social events. We also, of course, have formal meetings during the week lead by our psychologists, and have various course activities that we give as well. Patients frequently do not feel well in their earlier days of hospitalization and sometimes even later and certainly we cannot force people to attend any of these meetings (formal or informal) without compromising the best principles of care. However, we certainly support a gathering of people together whenever there is mutual desire. We thank you for your kind words about the program. Joel R. Saper, M.D., F.A.C.P., F.A.A.N. Founder and Director of MHNI Clinical Professor of Neurology, MSU

Dr. Saper is the best. His dedication to his patients and finding help for his patience is second to none. I highly recommend Dr. Saper. He took great care in evaluating how different medicines reacted together to help me with the least side effects. I also can't say enough good things about Mary, his right arm. The rest of the doctors and staff worked incredibly well together as well.

Dr. Saper and Dr. Lake are an incredible, effective team. Both are the top of their game and always learning the latest techniques. Between my work schedule and their demand, it is difficult to schedule appointments. Leslie has always been helpful with this. The entire staff is focussed on the patients, and staying on schedule. No exchanging jello recipes or snippy comments heard in the office. The office could use a make-over. Drs. Saper and Lake have been wonderful, supportive, thorough and expert in my care.
