Welcome to the outpatient service of the University of Florida Comprehensive Epilepsy Program!
Our outpatient clinic is located at our new UFHealth Neuromedicine Hospital that opened its doors in December 2017 (address and contact information below).
Our outpatient program services over 3000 patients from north and central Florida, and we see referrals from all over the state of Florida and the southern United States. Our experienced attending physicians, nurse practitioners and office managers staff over 40 half-day clinics that see over 150 patients weekly. Our waiting list for new patients is under two weeks, and we can usually see urgent patients sooner.
All outpatients are offered a detailed and unhurried evaluation of their seizure disorder. Outpatient electroencephalography (EEG) is conveniently located next to our clinic rooms; the outpatient lab for blood tests is also located on the same floor. Patients always have access to our staff through our phone lines and the patient portal of our electronic medical record system.
We offer expert evaluation of patients suspected to have seizures, new patients following their first suspected seizure, and patients with a longer history whose seizures remain difficult to manage. Our outpatient services are backed up by a brand new 8-bedded epilepsy monitoring unit in the Neuromedicine Hospital, and the full range of diagnostic facilities for state-of-the-art evaluation of epilepsy including digital video-EEG monitoring, 3 Tesla MRI, FDG-PET and Tc99-SPECT. In addition, magnetoencephalography (MEG) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) will become operational in 2018-19. Our epilepsy patients benefit from a comprehensive inter-disciplinary approach with our clinical colleagues in neuropsychology and neuro-radiology, who are critical partners of our experienced epilepsy surgery program that detailed separately on this website.
