Working with a patient’s referring physician, our epileptologist, Dr. Michelle Dougherty, who is fellowship trained in EEG and epilepsy, uses advanced monitoring equipment (EEG) and inpatient monitoring to provide accurate diagnoses. And, we make inpatient monitoring more convenient by scheduling appointments 7 days a week.
Once the epilepsy is appropriately diagnosed and categorized, our specialist works with patients to develop a treatment plan to better manage the disease. This can be done through medication, or when medication fails, patients can be referred to neurosurgeons who can work to bring control to seizures.
Appointments with our epilepsy specialist can be made by calling 609-537-7300.
