We see patients on Friday afternoons, but are always available by phone for any questions.
At the Adolescent Epilepsy Clinic, we offer comprehensive care of epilepsy and the related medical problems that may come along with epilepsy.
We provide support for teens with epilepsy along with guidance and education on how to best handle issues related to adolescent development, including a focus on potential concerns such as medication adherence, driving, participation in sports and reproductive issues.
We also help young people successfully transition from pediatric to adult-based healthcare.
