PNES Referral Sites

Psychogenic Non Epileptic Seizures Information

Once you are diagnosed with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures, it can be a huge challenge to find a treating professional when you are not provided with a proper referral. Below, you will find a list of health professionals who are specialized in the treatment of PNES. This list is organized by state. International listings can be found after US states. We are always looking for new treatment providers so if you know of one, please send us their contact information through the Ask Us Your Question tab and we will follow up with them to check their qualifications and their interest in being listed.
