Epilepsy and Memory Clinic

Patients with epilepsy frequently have cognitive difficulties including difficulties with concentration, memory, language, and visuospatial skills. A number of causes could be contributing to these symptoms such as a prior brain injury, the effect of seizures, the effect of anti-seizure medications, poor sleep, and difficulties with mood and anxiety. The goal of the clinic is to specifically evaluate and address cognitive difficulties in patients with epilepsy/seizures. The Epilepsy and Memory Clinic is run by Dr. Rani Sarkis (epilepsy specialist and behavioral neurologist) and Dr. Kim Willment (neuropsychologist). The clinic is held on a monthly basis and consists of a combined visit with Drs. Sarkis and Willment usually after comprehensive neuropsychological testing has been performed.
