  1. You may want to add information Kalarickal J. Oommen from Covenant Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas he specializes in epilepsy treatment in the Texas panhandle. He is titled an epileptologist and can handle anything from medication or up to RNS insertion.
    I will say that he referred me to Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas who inserted a deep brain stimulator which he thought would be the only way to do away with epilepsy. The deep brain stimulator was beyond what the area medical centers could handle. He suggested it and referred me to Dr. Perven who is also on your list who is also on your list.
    Dr. Perven whose treatment of epilepsy was also outstanding and after a lot of testing and meetings with her staff from psychologists and testing from equipment is rare and she is probably the most caring doctor I have ever seen. I say this hoping to try and help people in our area battling epilepsy.

  3. I enjoy reading your posts and find them interesting. Congratulations on compiling such a list we all need to know what experiences people have had with doctors.

    Unfortunately I live in Canada and this list is no good for me. Is there a list for Canada?

    I have had good and bad experiences with neurologists. I even had one ask me if I wanted to change my meds because I was overweight. I wondered where he got his medical license? A Cracker Jack box? Not how are you feeling on this medication and do you have any concerns. This is one of the reasons I approach neurologists with apprehension. I have had a GP in an ER try to change my meds and no family doctor to do follow up. Thank heavens I had enough sense to say no to that idea. TWICE! I got the same doctor in two different instances and that is what he suggested even when I told him I had no doctor. It does not help that I have my own form of white coat syndrome, my mind goes blank when I am asked if I have any questions or concerns. When I go to my family doctor shuts me down after one problem And it is so hard to change my way of thinking that someone wants to look at me as a whole person instead of one problem (that could actually be caused by something totally else). I am just a frustrated patient that has been through the mill and tired how the medical system is set up.

    I would love to have a Canadian list because of what I have experienced.

  4. Gosh Jane, I wish more of my readers were from Canada but, obviously not.

    It sounds like you’ve got a full plate/ empty plate situation. A head full of knowledge and no one to share it with.

    Here’s something that might be a long shot, but it’s been tried and true in helping others with epilepsy…

    Take a look and see what you think. The beauty here is, you’re in charge! And the results speak for themselves. Good luck.
