``Compared to my previous provider for this issue, who did little more than refill prescriptions... (Dr. Cho) actually attempted to get to the root cause of my condition, and provided various treatments in an attempt to actually treat the real cause of my condition.``

– MedStar Health patient, 1/21/20

Treatment options for epilepsy and sudden seizures include medication and leading-edge interventions at the recommendation of your physicians - such as vagal nerve stimulation, medication, surgery, a ketogenic diet, and deep brain stimulation. To diagnose your seizure disorder, a neurological exam, blood tests, EEG, CT scan, MRI, PET scan, or neuropsychological tests may be performed.
