Dr. Casaly is a neurologist who has devoted the last 29 years of his career to the evaluation and management of patients experiencing headache disorders. Born and raised in Waterbury, Connecticut, he graduated from the University of Connecticut with a B.S. Degree with Distinction with a major in Biophysics. He graduated from University of Connecticut Medical School in 1984 and completed his neurology training at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City where he served as Chief Resident. After three years of practice in general neurology in Stamford, CT he joined the Midwest Center for Head Pain Management in the Dayton, Ohio area and subsequently became the Medical Director of that institution. In 2001 he started a solo headache specialty practice in the Dallas, Texas area called the Headache Center of North Texas where he practiced through late 2018. During his time in Ohio and Texas he served on the clinical faculty of Wright State School of Medicine and UT Southwestern School of Medicine.

Dr. Casaly is now thrilled to be back home in Connecticut providing compassionate, state-of-the art treatment of patients experiencing headache or facial pain at the Hartford Healthcare Mystic facility. He is a long-standing member of the American Headache Society, the National Headache Federation and has received the Certification of Added Qualification in Headache Medicine from the latter institution. He is a member of the CSF Pressure Disorders special interest group of the American Headache Society. He has published several articles in the scientific journal Headache, has presented at Grand Rounds at multiple institutions and has presented at a scientific meeting of the American Headache Society.
