Our Experts

Accurate diagnosis is critical for determining the best treatment plan to control recurrent seizures. Early recognition of treatment-resistant epilepsy is essential. Uncontrolled seizures can cause permanent brain injury leading to social impairments and eventually physical disability.

We are your partners in ensuring the highest quality of life possible with the ultimate goal of achieving no seizures with no side effects.

The multidisciplinary treatment team collaborates to ensure that an accurate epilepsy diagnosis is made quickly and treatment goals are reached soon thereafter. This team approach provides well-coordinated, comprehensive care and ensures all your concerns and needs are addressed.
