I believe that many people do not know that the field of Epileptology even exists. When looking for a new doctor or Epilepsy Center it is good to be knowledgable. These are websites I found very educational and informative. Tattoo http://w3.uokhsc.edu/neuro/division/epil.htm
Thanks for the info!!!! Did I read right that you have to have a referral?
Tattoo, by any chance did you happen to read my other post? I could really use your input. I've read many of your posts and would really appreciate hearing what you think! Sorry for being selfish, but I really need help!
Everyday we learn something new! It may not be important or news worthy, but it should remind us all that no one knows everything!
Re: Finding a doctor or Epi Center. Some guidelines.
Just wanted to bump this up since it has some important Guidelines for finding a Epileptologist. I am not sure if the links work now or not, but the Guidelines info is still on the Cleveland clinic website the last time I looked. It is so very important to find the right doc who is not only properly trained in Epilepsy but also is a patient oriented doc. Some are more research oriented, so they are not all the same, as my own experience taught me. I went to both kinds. Phoebe
