I've been followed by an epileptologist fot the past 20 years. In many cases, I'm sure the extra credentials aren't necessary, but given the fact that you've not recieved much in the way of answers, I'd head for one. He also gives my husband and I all the time we need. That's one thing mine does: he teaches, or has a staff that DOES. Not to say a neurologist can't do the same; guess much of it depends on the relationship you have with the doc, too.
There are things that make an epileptologist differ from an neurologist; he is a neurologist who SPECIALIZES in epilepsy, in many cases there is a research component, a teaching component, and possibly a publishing componenet. Mine is affiliated with a large medical center. I think many of them are MDs with PhDs in another area of science.
I have an article about one that I've saved; let me try to find it:
Hope this helps!
