(Spin Digit Editorial):- New York City, New York Jul 8, 2022 ( – Dr. Escasena is an established Florida-based neurologist with over 14 years of experience in the field. He currently provides care at The Headache Wellness Center in Coral Gables, and Sunset Neurological Group in Miami.

He specializes in diagnosing and treating many kinds of headaches, including tension headaches, migraines, and cluster headaches, as well as occipital neuralgia and headaches caused by the overuse of medications. He recognizes that each case of pain is as unique as the patient, and takes the time to thoroughly understand the problem prior to launching into a treatment plan.

Encouraged and inspired by the words of his grandfather, Dr. Escasena dreamed of becoming a physician since he was a teenager. In order to pursue his dream and passion, and to gain exposure to different cultures, he decided to attend the Autonomous University of Guadalajara. During his years as a medical student, he was particularly attracted to neurology, and specifically headache medicine, due to having spent his life watching loved ones suffer from debilitating headaches. He made it his mission to study everything he could to help headache sufferers feel like themselves again.

Upon graduating, he completed his residency in neurology at the SUNY Downstate Medical Center in New York, followed by a clinical fellowship in headache medicine at Mount Sinai Roosevelt Headache Institute and Adolescent Headache Center. He was awarded the “Frontiers in Headache Research Scholarship” Award by the American Headache Society in 2014 and was the recipient of the Top Neurologist Award by America’s Best Doctors in 2021.

Continuously advancing his efforts, Dr. Escasena is an active member of the American Headache Society, the International Headache Society, and the American Academy of Neurology.

Professionally, he continues to be active in the headache medical community and is a frequent speaker at medical conferences. He co-authored a research paper “Headache and Dizziness: How to Differentiate Vestibular Migraine from Other Conditions”, published in the Current Pain and Headache Reports in 2015. He also collaborated with Dr. Adelene Jann on a research project “Onabotulinum toxin A for the treatment of new daily persistent headache: an open-label study.”

Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. Neurologists are licensed medical specialists who diagnose and treat disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles of patients. They examine a patient’s mental and physical status, conduct medical tests and scans, and evaluate the results to diagnose and treat the patient.

To better serve the diverse community of Florida, Dr. Escasena is fluent in both English and Spanish.
