Seizure-Treatment-Smithtown-NY

Smithtown patients are offered tailored seizure treatment options for even the most challenging disorders.

Our professional medical team will review your symptoms and medical history and may order a neurological examination to test for mental function and motor abilities.

These are additional tests that may rule out possible physical causes by first checking for epilepsy because the results will influence other required types of potential follow-on tests, such as, but not limited to:

  • Neuroimaging, such as an MRI, MRS, PET, or fMRI
  • An Electroencephalogram (EEG) with video monitoring
  • A Wada test to evaluate language & memory functions
  • Neuropsychological, speech, and hearing evaluations
  • A SPECT test to measure blood flow in the brain

Dr. McMonigle will discuss the most effective therapies and seizure treatment options with you.
