Having epilepsy can mean interacting with many different members of a health care team. You may receive a referral to a neurologist, who can assist with your epilepsy care. However, you may also be referred to an epileptologist (epilepsy specialist), especially if your seizures are difficult to control or diagnose. While epileptologists are not numerous, they are an excellent choice for assisting with your care. You can ask your family practitioner, or general neurologist, for a referral.
