Can anyone help??? Does anyone know a highly recommended neurologist? I am trying to find one, maybe in New York City, or wherever as long as he/she is good.


RE: specialist

I just went to the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at NYU and they were excellent. I met with Dr. Singh but I really don't think you can do wrong with any of the neuros there. Epilepsy is all they do so I feel like something is finally getting done.Good luck to you!

The NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center was the original home of this website, so that is a good place to start if you're in the New York area. Others looking for epilepsy specialists may wish to check the list of epilepsy centers posted by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers, at

We love Dr. Singh at NYU. My son is 17 and was diagnosed in 2009. We first went to Beth Israel and then switched to NYU and could not be happier with that decision. Dr. Singh is caring, respectful and thoughtful. I can email her at any time, which is important to me. My son likes her as well. The staff are pleasant and efficient with prescriptions and tests.
