Cristina Trandafir, MD
My specialty is in the diagnosis and treatment of seizures and epilepsy. I enjoy educating and helping patients and their families choose the right strategies and treatments for seizure control. I believe that involving patients and families in the decision-making process is crucial for a successful outcome.
