I had my first seizure 5 years ago - age 35 - for unknown reasons. Spent first 3 months struggling with a horrid local neurologist until my family doctor finally sent me to a doctor at Indiana University medical ctr - Indianapolis. He has been better than the first guy, but has taken a very laid back approach to my treatment. My seizures are atypical (long story), so he just kind of shrugs his shoulders. I am currently on Tegretol XR and Neurontin.
My family is urging me to get this evaluated further/better. At the current time, my family doctor said he could refer me to Mayo in Minnesota or Vanderbilt in Tennessee (much closer). But how do you know which is better? Should we go 10 hours to Mayo or can we get good treatment at Vanderbilt? How do you choose???
