dr. Gretchen Von Allmen received her medical degree from Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, and completed residencies at Emory and Northwestern University, as well as fellowships at the University of Chicago and Baylor College of Medicine. The clinical interest of Dr. Von Allmen in neurology with special qualifications in pediatric neurology, focuses on pediatric epilepsy, including intractable pediatric epilepsy, epilepsy surgery, brain malformations, infantile spasms, and the genetics of epilepsy. dr. Von Allmen, a Fulbright scholar, has been recognized with the Child Neurology Foundation Research Award. In practice since 2003, Dr. Von Allmen patients up to the age of 18 and speaks French.
dr. Von Allmen believes that every child with epilepsy deserves a full evaluation with an individualized management and treatment plan. She listens to each child’s story and concerns, always makes herself available and never gives up on improving care and seizure control. She emphasizes a personal touch and lasting relationships with patients and families. Her practice offers proactive evaluation for seizure free or optimal seizure control, as well as early consideration for options such as epilepsy surgery, VNS (Vagus Nerve Stimulation Therapy), and ketogenic diet.
