Philosophy of Care

I believe in caring for a person, improving their overall quality of life, and not just a specific disease metric. It is my goal to help my patients reach their health goals. To this end, I believe in being honest with my patients, providing detailed information about the management options, and shared decision making.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Agrawal is a neurologist with advanced training and certification in caring for adults with epilepsy. Her special clinical interests include treating seizures that do not respond well to common medications, comorbidity of epilepsy, and management of status epilepticus.

Research/Academic Interests

Dr. Agrawal is focused on improving treatments for drug resistant epilepsy and status epilepticus that continues for days despite use of second and third line treatments.
