Find a Medical Professional Who Specializes in Epilepsy Treatment
In many cases, a neurologist or general practitioner can successfully treat epilepsy. In any of the following circumstances, however, seeing an epileptologist (a neurologist who specializes in epilepsy) is recommended:

  • if two tolerated and appropriate medications have failed to control your seizures
  • if you've been seeing a general neurologist, and your seizures have not been brought under control after 12 months
  • if your seizures are controlled, but the resulting medication side effects are difficult to tolerate
  • if your doctor is unsure of your diagnosis
  • if you have complications from epilepsy (e.g. memory problems, depression, etc.)
  • if you're a woman with epilepsy considering pregnancy
American Epilepsy Society (AES) members, many of whom are epileptologists, have a special interest in the diagnosis and management of epilepsy. The AES Find a Doctor search tool can help you find epilepsy specialists in your area. 

Find a Comprehensive Epilepsy Center  
Most epileptologists see patients at a Comprehensive Epilepsy Center. Each center is staffed by a team of epilepsy experts, including epileptologists, clinical nurse specialists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, EEG techs, and others. They also provide access to the full range of diagnostic and treatment options.
