Does the EEG procedure hurt? Will it electrocute my brain?
The EEG procedure is non-invasive. It is not sending any electricity to your brain, but reading the electrical activity that is happening inside your head.
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 before you come in and avoid simple carbs and sugars. Our brains perform the best when they are fueled properly. It is fine to take your medications, but ask that you hold off taking any stimulants/caffeine until after the procedure. FYI you will be leaving the procedure with lots of gel in your hair, but we will use a towel to get out 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 a portion for it.
How long does the procedure take?
We like to schedule the procedure for an hour, which includes assessment, set up, recording, and clean up.
When do I get my results?
We will have the reports back in a week.
