Comprehensive epilepsy centers are clinics staffed by epileptologists and other experts in epilepsy treatment. They are valuable resources for anyone who has unresolved problems related to definite or suspected epilepsy. Patients may be referred to a comprehensive epilepsy center for a single outpatient visit to assess their diagnosis and therapy, or they may receive long-term follow-up and treatment, including epilepsy surgery or the use of new medications that are still being investigated.
