At the Pediatric Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at the NewYork-Presbyterian Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children’s Health, our team takes a holistic approach to every patient with epilepsy in a compassionate and comfortable setting assessing not only the biological basis of the child's seizures, but other factors in his or her life that may affect them.
The needs of a child with epilepsy affect the entire family. We work closely with families to address the needs of each child and assess how those needs influence the family dynamic. For school-age children who require longer-term care, we have staff available to help the child keep up with his or her educational development.
The Pediatric Comprehensive Epilepsy Center welcomes the ongoing participation of referring physicians to join the management team to assist us in providing comprehensive care for your patients. We serve as a resource for pediatricians, family practitioners and neurologists in need of a primary diagnosis or second opinion for their patients.
