Does the EEG procedure hurt?
The EEG procedure is non-invasive. The technology reads the electrical activity inside your head. It does not send any electricity to your brain.
How do I prepare for the qEEG/EEG?
We ask that you arrive with clean hair/scalp, without any hair product. It is important that you eat a protein-filled meal and avoid simple carbs and sugars before you come in. Our brains perform the best when they are fueled properly. It is fine to take your medications, but we ask that you hold off on taking any stimulants/caffeine until after the procedure. You will leave the procedure with lots of gel in your hair, but we will use a towel to remove as much as we can.
Does insurance cover the qEEG/EEG?
If your doctor makes a referral to rule out seizure activity, insurance will likely pay for a portion of the procedure.
