Hello– — -my name is Carol Matthews. I am a Family, Pediatric, and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. I have worked in the Springfield area since 1972 when I graduated from the former St. John’s School of Nursing. Since then I have worked in health care in roles varied from obstetrics to geriatrics.
Since 1994, I have been an Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioner; I began to work with migraine and headache management with Dr. Roger Cady, MD in 1996. In 2008, I received my Doctorate as an Advanced Practice Nurse. I
currently am a sub-investigator with Clinvest Research, LLC and involved in several Headache & Rheumatoid Arthritis studies/trials. I am Board Certified in Headache Medicine by the National Headache Foundation.
I have a passion for bringing accessible Headache management to those in need. I have recently opened a private practice (Headache Management of Springfield) within Clinvest providing migraine and headache management. No referral is needed and there is minimal wait time for appointments. The care provided is personal and thorough.
Initial visits will be approximately 90min in length and encompass review of past medical history, medications, and other related issues. I work with surrounding Health Care facilities to provide various testing procedures as needed. (I will personally provide a phone consult before the visit to assure a more efficient appointment.)
Headache Management of Springfield is a direct care practice, providing visits at a reduced specialist fee of $120.00 for the initial visit and $60.00 per recheck visit. There is no hassle with insurance copays and paperwork as we accept direct pay at the time of the visit (no insurance claims). Both before and after admission, phone access is easy and encouraged.
I look forward and encourage introductory phone consults. I am currently accepting patients for immediate evaluation and
