Myrtle Beach, SC |
Infant in hospital for seizure like behavior - turned out gastro issues. Along the way a 48 hour eeg requested The good thing Dr. did -ensure it was 48 hours. Bad thing - inability to pull up eeg data with us (twice)- left out of review, jumping to barbituate prescrip even though only 80% confident about night-time 1 second seizures, and witholding MRI unless we agreed to meds right away. Also saying barbituates have no side effects - they can be mental retardation. Get a 2nd opinion always.
