Dr. Alison Dolce, a Child Neurologist in the departments of Pediatrics, Neurology and Neurotherapeutics at UT Southwestern focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of children with epilepsy. She evaluates and cares for children from the onset of seizures to those who continue to have seizures despite trying multiple medications. She has a particular interest in those children who may be candidates for additional treatment options including the ketogenic diet, neurostimulation and epilepsy surgery.
Dr. Dolce received her medical degree from UT Houston Medical School. She went on to complete a residency in pediatrics at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC, followed by a second residency in pediatric neurology at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD. Upon completion of her pediatric neurology training, she then did a clinical neurophysiology fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX. Dr. Dolce is board certified in neurology with special qualification in child neurology. She is also board certified in clinical neurophysiology and epilepsy. Specific interests include medical and surgical therapy for medically refractory childhood epilepsy, neonatal seizures, and refractory status epilepticus.
