      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Smith's Care Philosophy

      Epilepsy is a pretty common illness. About one percent of the population has epilepsy. And so there's a lot of people with uncontrolled epilepsy that we try to make better. We try to get their seizures stopped so that they can have a full and normal life. Epilepsy is both a disease - that is the seizures themselves - and also all the psychosocial stigmata that go with the illness. And so frankly people are scared to death of epilepsy. And if your child had a seizure, you'd think the child is dying. And it's a very emotional, wrenching time. And so education is a very important thing. A lot of the times, it's just teaching the parents and the loved ones that things can be ok.
