Pediatric specialty care in your neighborhood

Pediatric neurologists at Dell Children's - Comprehensive Pediatric Epilepsy Center Waco deliver advanced epilepsy care for children.

Dell Children’s brings leading epilepsy care to children and families in Waco, Texas. Pediatric epileptologists (epilepsy doctors) at Dell Children’s Comprehensive Pediatric Epilepsy Center specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and management of seizures and epilepsy. We start by listening to understand your child and their health concerns. Your child’s doctor uses advanced diagnostics to help find the cause of your child’s seizures. Together, we create a care plan to help treat and manage, and in some cases stop, your child’s seizures. And, our care doesn’t end when your child turns 18 — we help your child manage their epilepsy into adulthood at Ascension Providence.
