Our goal is to provide comprehensive care and education to patients with seizures and families.
The referral guidelines for seizure disorders established by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers are:
1. If seizures are not under control after three months of care by a primary care provider (family physician, pediatrician), further neurologic intervention by a neurologist or epilepsy center is appropriate.
2. If seizures remain under poor control after 12 months while seeing a general neurologist, referral to a specialized epilepsy center with an epileptologist is appropriate.
Once seizures are under control, care is transferred back to the primary care provider.
