The Epilepsy Center at Hartford HealthCare’s Ayer Neuroscience Institute offers the most advanced care for people of all ages with seizures and all forms of epilepsy.

We set the gold standard for diagnosis and care. When you or a loved one have a seizure, getting the right diagnosis quickly is very important. More than 2 million Americans will have a seizure at some point, but only one or two out of 100 actually have epilepsy. To get the most effective treatment, you must be diagnosed correctly. The first step, however, is an accurate diagnosis – sometimes what seems like a seizure isn’t a seizure at all! Our epilepsy specialists will guide you to the right diagnosis, which is crucially important for getting you the right treatments.
