New Onset Seizure Center

Introduction to the Program

The Epilepsy Program at Monmouth Medical Center now offers a specialized center for patients who have experienced a recent seizure or seizure-like episode.

The New-Onset Seizure Center gives patients rapid access to epilepsy specialists and the most accurate diagnostic techniques available.
