After wasting 3 years of my life this doctor tells me that there is nothing that can be done about my seizures. So I finally find a new doctor who actually knew how to treat my epilepsy and we ended up doing a brain surgery. I have been seizure free ever since the surgery and if I was still with this doctor, who knows I would still have epilepsy.

We drive an hour to see this Dr. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and attentive. I like that he doesn't want to overmedicate. He tries to find the best care w/ the least amount of med that the body needs. Great listener and good at answering your questions. I have never felt rushed.
