All faculty members of Houston's McGovern Medical School at UTHealth, the team includes top specialists from all areas relating to the diagnosis, care and treatment of adult and pediatric epilepsy patients. These neurologists and neurosurgeons work in clinics located across the Greater Houston area, from the Texas Comprehensive Epilepsy Program in the Texas Medical Center to clinics located in Katy, the Greater Heights area, Southwest Houston, The Woodlands and Bellaire.
