About Me

Dr. Olivia Begasse de Dhaem is a board-certified and fellowship-trained neurologist and headache specialist.

Dr. Begasse de Dhaem is passionate about the field of Neurology because the nervous system is what makes us who we are. The nervous system controls our brain function, regulates the rest of our bodies, processes the world around us, creates emotions, stores memories, and much more. Dr. Begasse de Dhaem feels strongly about taking care of people with neurological issues because their courage inspires her. She wants to help them maintain or regain function and reach their goals. She advocates for her patients and counsels them about non-addictive options for their pain management.

Dr. Begasse de Dhaem enjoys communicating her passion for the fields of Neurology and Headache Medicine. She has hosted Facebook Lives and has recorded podcasts on headache medicine education.
