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 or who have expressed an interest in PNES. This list is organized by state. International listings can be found at the bottom of this page (after US states). The aim is for this list to continue growing so if you know of a health professional who is not listed, please send 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.
