 True or false: Dr. Lindsay Elton suffered painful migraines as a child, just like so many of her current patients? True.

As one of Child Neurology Consultants of Austin’s specialists who treats migraines, Dr. Elton knows firsthand about what a debilitating experience they can be. Her personal knowledge of the condition provides her with a unique heartfelt approach to caring for these—and all-- kiddos.
