For Providers

The structure of the Ayer Neuroscience Institute team fosters a collaborative environment and the providers at the Epilepsy Center appreciate being able to work with other experts to create a treatment plan that benefits the patient.

This includes collaborating closely with referring providers on the shared goal of improving the patient’s health and sense of independence.

We also are happy to offer resources, educational opportunities and conversation that benefit practitioners at all stages. We believe life-long learners provide the best possible care for patients and bring the most value to our collaborative efforts.
