About us

Dr. Dale Carter’s philosophy includes a collaborative approach with patients, spending ample one-on-one time in order to discover the sources of the pain and to create successful treatment plans. She views each patient as clinically unique, with no, “one-size-fits-all” approach.

Dr. Carter is an expert in her chosen field of neurology, with diverse experience treating head and neck pain in various settings (a specialized inpatient unit, day treatment center and outpatient clinics). With a preference for minimizing the use of narcotics, treatment options may include traditional medications, compounding, or herbal preparations for medication-sensitive patients, and a variety of body work modalities, yoga, lab testing, imaging and much more. The intent is to provide a unique, more effective treatment for acute and/or recurrent headaches.

Dr. Carter designed NW Headache and Wellness Center to accommodate headache patients, offering a relaxed, quiet environment with a soothing lobby wall fountain, dimmed lighting for light-sensitivity, and a quiet ambiance for sound-sensitive patients.
