Asking for my best friend. Can anyone recommend an excellent neurologist in NYC or Philadelphia? She’s in NJ and her 18 year old daughter has recently been diagnosed with generalized adolescent onset seizures and apparently she’s classified as having epilepsy. I’m trying to encourage my friend to take her daughter for a second opinion somewhere as her seizures are becoming more frequent. I’m not particularly fond of our local hospital where she’s taking her. Thanks in advance!
