What Our Patients Are Saying

Post-Concussive Headaches & Dizziness

I am beyond impressed with every aspect of this practice. Within weeks I noticed gradual but substantial changes in my frequent migraine, daily dizziness, nausea & neck pain. In my four-year search for relief, no doctor linked my prior head trauma as an athlete to my symptoms. After only two months, & for the first time in years, I now wake up free of nausea & dizziness, & have cut down migraines to only once or twice a month (versus once or twice a week). I encourage anyone with a similar story to set up a consult at Oculus as soon as possible.

Dr T and Dr B are AMAZING! I have never had such a positive and supportive relationship with doctors before. Not only are their treatments personalized and allow me to see my progress and areas to keep working on, the treatments require me to be actively involved in my own rehabilitation, which is motivating and empowering. They are also highly approachable, personable and enjoyable to work with. Their knowledge and expertise is evident in everything they do, and I’ve never had such responsive and thoughtful providers. I couldn’t recommend them more highly!!

Migraines

The doctors at OBC are better than the rest. I have suffered from migraines for as long as I can remember, trying different therapies and medications, with no luck. Since starting my treatment at Oculus 6 weeks ago I continuously keep progressing the amount of time between headaches and the severity of them. I do not remember the last time I went this long without taking excedrin. OCB has changed my life and helped me improve in such a short time, I did not think it was possible!!

Post-Concussion Syndrome

I suffered from a TBI in 2020 and couldn't seem to find anyone in my traditional medical network to help with my lingering symptoms. I found Dr B and Dr T (and Brittany) while looking for a functional neurologist and can't even put into words how much they have helped me. I have seen a complete turnaround in the way I feel and they are always so responsive and caring. I am so grateful for all the adjustments and exercises they have developed for me and continue to see improvements every week.

Memory

I don’t often write reviews but the quality of the service and the personalized care have helped me regain my cognitive memory that I thought was lost forever.Most functional doctors are good but Dr. Terrano, as a functional neurologist, is one of the most knowledgeable people I’ve met in my 59 years, along with being friendly, kind, reassuring and always wanting what’s best for his patients.I can assure you I will be a patient for life and will always be quick to recommend them.

Cyclical Vomiting
Read More
Dr. Barbakoff and Dr. Terrano are the most caring doctors we have had the pleasure of being treated by. After our daughter (age 10) had been struggling 2 years with cyclic vomiting we found Dr. “B” and Dr. “T”. They worked with us both in person and long distance to bring our daughter back to heath. She is 95% better! They are both brilliant, easy to talk to and adept at explaining the science behind what they do. They respond to our texts or phone calls within 24 hours, and have recommended other amazing doctors. I cannot recommend them enough. If you want brilliant doctors who really care Oculus Brain Centers is the place to come.

Migraines, Post-Concussion Syndrome

I started going here a little over a month ago for my migraines, nausea and other issues I was having daily from the many concussions I’ve gotten through the years. I heard about them through a friend of theirs that does chiropractic on my horses. They figured out exactly what was going on and laid out exercises and a plan to help me. I haven’t had a migraine in over a month! It’s so amazing I love it there, Dr.T and Dr.B are so wonderful, I couldn’t ask for a better team!

Double Vision

I was diagnosed with non-paralytic strabismus, which was causing double vision. I was lost and didn't know where to turn. I'd never even heard of functional neurology. I found Oculus Brain Centers and within the first minute of the phone call, I felt at home.

These two doctors are the most incredible doctors I have ever met. They have not only resolved many of my health issues, but they've inspired me to live a healthier life where I advocate for my own health! Drs. B and T have helped resolve my headaches, knee pain (thanks to sports), lower back pain, and even helped me improve my nutrition/lifestyle habits! If you're looking for a non-invasive approach to finding the root cause of your health concerns, whatever they may be, these are the doctors for you! They are life-changing!
