Dr. David Vossler, MD
I have been specializing in epilepsy care in the Seattle area since July 1987. I was chief resident in neurology at Boston University, and then came to Seattle to complete a 2-year optional fellowship in clinical neurophysiology at the University of Washington after which I joined the faculty. I am clinical professor of neurology at University of Washington. I practice at UW Medicine | Valley Medical Center where I am medical director of the Neuroscience Institute, and treat patients with epilepsy, run epilepsy research studies, and teach medical students and residents. I am chair of the American Epilepsy Society Treatments Committee and Vice President of the Washington State Neurology Society.

Dr. Vossler's Care Philosophy

My main objective is to be a teacher to my patients. That way they understand their condition and its signs and symptoms. I teach them to avoid triggers that cause flareups of their condition. We discuss the use of medications, diets, surgery and devices when necessary. I offer research trials as well. It is as important to avoid some drug side effects as it is to get good effects of their medications. I firmly believe that the patient, other providers, my staff and I and must work as a team in order to help my patients live the best lives they can.

    Patient Comments (3)
    in Seattle, WA |
    We have been stationed here for almost a year and have been going to him for 10 months. He has always given us great service and is willing to listen to all our concerns. Out of all 3 of my wife's past neuroscience doctors I would highly recommend Dr. Vossler.
    Excellent doctor. He's extremely well educated, up on all of the current research. He's one of the only doctors in Washington who can do surgery, if that's a consideration. He works very hard to get complete seizure control. His assistant Katie is the BEST!
    in Auburn, WA |
    Dr. Vossler is the best neurologist I have ever had. He is thorough, professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate. He also listens and is a good communicator. I highly recommend him.
