For Medical Professionals


The Epilepsy Program works closely with referring physicians to determine the best treatment for each patient. We keep the primary physician informed of the patient's status. In many cases, patients return to their primary care physician to manage their condition, though our neurology specialists remain available for continued consultation.

If you have a patient you believe would benefit from the expertise of our Epilepsy Program specialists, please call our physician-to-physician consultation line at 310-423-7420 or email us at
