Epilepsy Institute

We are continually expanding our outstanding care and treatment for seizures and epilepsy. With three outpatient offices in Dallas and Addison, as well as inpatient services at Medical City Dallas Hospital and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas, we offer one of the most comprehensive treatment options in North Texas.

Our Epilepsy Institute provides comprehensive care for adults who have epilepsy, seizures, spells that may affect consciousness such as blackouts, and movement disorders that may represent underlying seizures.

We have four physicians who specialize in epilepsy and conduct EEGs.
