Meet Dr. Risa Ravitz, MD

Hi, I’m Dr. Risa Ravitz. Having dealt with migraines for years, I really get what you’re dealing with, how it impacts your life, and why it’s so important to find relief fast. Together, we can get answers and better manage, reduce, and even relieve your symptoms entirely. That’s always our goal. It starts with education and, of course, the right treatment and care.

Beyond migraines, I specialize in general neurology, pain management, and improving whole brain health. I’ve been studying this stuff for years and I’m constantly evolving my approach to align with the latest science, technology, and clinical data. I love exploring spirituality and the convergence of Eastern and Western medicine. I also love to surf, write and hang out with friends and family.
