New onset seizures
Seizures are common in children, but a child’s first seizure is scary for parents. It is important that a child with new onset seizures be seen promptly. We will try to see a child within a few days of the first seizure. An encephalogram (EEG) will be ordered at the visit or can be set up by your primary care provider (PCP). The EEG can be done in our office. You may call the scheduling line at 678-705-7341 to request an urgent appointment for an evaluation. Your PCP will be kept informed on plans for testing and treatment for your child.
We offer comprehensive outpatient EEG Services with a full time Registered EEG Technologist performing routine EEGs for all ages, Ambulatory EEGs (24-72 Hr) and outpatient Video EEG. Some of these services can be combined to guarantee the best data is acquired to help the child with epilepsy.
Epilepsy Research Studies
A full time research coordinator is able to offer investigational drug trials for marketed and novel forms of treatment in epilepsy. Presently we are the only site in the State of GA with an approved Expanded IND for the treatment of intractable epilepsy with medical marijuana (Epidiolex®). Our protocols vary over time depending on drug development.
