Hello. Welcome to JA. How can I help? Tell me more about your son. Was the seizure witnessed? What did he do if you know. Any information you can tell me to tell seizure from syncope? Any family history of epilepsy? Does he have a neurological history? Febrile seizures as a child? Does he drink or use drugs? Get back to me and I will reply. Will put out phone option if you want to talk but JA charges extra. Dr Frank.

I would consider a phone call, but I'd need to have doctor's full name and location before doing that so we can confirm board certification. Sorry, but it's the internet, so that's how we would proceed. Thank you.

ABPN Certified in 1991. If I do call you the number is ***** Please get back to me if I can help, if not good luck to you and your son. Dr Frank

BTW. This does not infer a doctor patient relationship. It is only medical advice and I cannot prescribe or order testing. Dr Frank
