Good communication with your neurologist or epileptologist is important in the goal to achieving seizure freedom and living a full life.
We want to help you get the conversation started and help you take an active role. Because there are many epilepsy treatments to choose from, your neurologist or epileptologist needs as much information as possible to recommend the best treatment options. Working together to identify side effects and diagnose seizure types and patterns could make a significant difference in your quality of life.
What Is an Epileptologist?
Epileptologists, while not numerous, are available to you, as are other specialists trained in neurology or neurosurgery. While an epileptologist is often an excellent choice, a good neurologist in your area can also offer high-quality epilepsy treatment.

Ask your family practitioner or general neurologist for a referral.
