I had grand mal seizures and Dr. Goodman performed surgery on my right temporal lobe 12 years ago. I have been seizure free since then without any auras, no seizure medication, my memory became sharp and my weight dropped. I couldn't have lived a normal life without Dr. Robert Goodman performing the surgery and the help from Dr. Lawrence Hirsch and Dr. Mark Gudesblatt.
