Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Epilepsy Program

Epilepsy is a serious medical condition that requires specialized care and treatment. Though serious, epileptic seizures can be controlled. Our neurologists can help find what’s causing your child’s seizures and provide them with a treatment plan to help them live a normal life.

The signs and symptoms of epileptic seizures can range from full-body spasms to your child becoming completely still and unresponsive. Contact a neurologist if you notice any of the following:

  • Staring
  • Jerking movements of the arms and legs
  • Stiffening of the body
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Breathing problems or breathing stops
  • Loss of bowel or bladder control
  • Falling suddenly
  • Becoming unresponsive
  • Appearing confused or in a haze
  • Nodding the head rhythmically
  • Rapid eye blinking

To schedule an appointment with a specialist call our Physician Referral Service at 866-934-3627 or search our online physician directory.
