Dr. Ahmed is pleased to offer private-pay treatment for Chronic Migraines (more than 15 headaches per month) with Botox® Therapeutic.
Appointments are a minimum of 30 minutes and if medically indicated, Dr. Ahmed will proceed with treatment.
Of importance, this is an entirely private pay procedure at our clinic. Typically, ~200 (two hundred) units of Botox® Therapeutic is used, at a cost of $8.00/unit. There are no consultation fees and we do not charge MSP for the medical assessment.
In British Columbia, it may be possible to have this procedure partially or completely covered by MSP/Pharmacare or some private drug plans. Often this is then performed by a neurologist or physiatrist.
At the Victoria Botox® Clinic, this is an entirely private (patient) pay service that will be out of pocket. Patients are to be very aware that this service could potentially be covered (by MSP/Pharmacare or secondary insurance) if done elsewhere. As Family Physicians, we would be able and willing to refer a patient on for such assessment/treatment as appropriate.
Dr. Ahmed will require a 30-45 minute appointment for proper assessment and treatment if indicated. Please call the clinic directly to schedule an appointment.
