Rapid expert virtual consultations for all types of epilepsy and seizures from new-onset to highly complex.
At home EEGs can help clarify the epilepsy diagnosis and distinguish seizure types for personalized treatment.
In cases where the cause of seizures is not explained by initial testing, genetic testing may be recommended.
Precision Epilepsy PLLC is a pediatric epilepsy practice that utilizes innovative telehealth technology, so all children affected by seizures have improved access to specialized care.

Dr John J Millichap, MD is an accomplished pediatric epileptologist available to provide expert virtual consultations in multiple States nationwide (licensed in all the purple states in the adjacent figure). After over a decade at Northwestern University's top-ranked academic pediatric epilepsy center, Dr Millichap has seen a high volume of rare epilepsies that community neurologists may not be familiar with. Consultations will provide information regarding diagnosis, treatment options, and next steps from a nationally recognized specialist. Opinions are communicated to the local primary treating neurologist or pediatrician.
Dr. Millichap is a great doctor. My son has been with him for years. It is
actually very hard to find such a doctor who are both a pediatric neurologist and a researcher
on SCN8A gene related medical condition. We are lucky!
Very compassionate. Takes his time to listen, very attentive and knowledgeable. My son had grand mal seizures and previous 2 neurologists didn’t help for more than a year to stop the seizures. To change neurologist, we were on waiting list with Dr John but worth the wait. First visit listened to us for 2 hours asking questions and history of my son’s seizures. Told us to adjust dosage of the medication he was taking and our son’s seizures stopped and didn’t have seizures for more than 2 years now. We are very happy and highly recommend Dr John....
Dr Millichap is wonderful with our daughter and with us as her parents. He goes the extra mile to answer our questions and is always looking for new treatments when others are not working out.
My experience with Dr. Millichap has always been a good one. He is thorough and asks plenty of questions very observant and compassionate and genuine doctor. He's very serious a concerning his work. Dr. Millichap is an soldier on the front line willingly fighting for whats best for his patients.
