Overview

We treat children and teens with epilepsy, as well as disorders such as autism, attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD) and seizures. 

We provide guidance and education through adolescent development, including medication adherence, driving, participation in sports and reproductive issues. We can help with the transition from pediatric to adult-based healthcare. 

Outreach clinics are available throughout Southwest Virginia, including BristolTazewell and Wise.
