If a child, yes: Your other choices are to find an epilepsy specialist- fellowship trained after neurology residency who will see children or find a pediatric neurologist at a childrens hospital.

Pediatric neurology: A person under 18 or so, who has seizures, would benefit from seeing a pediatric neurologist. In some areas, neurologists see both children and adults. In places with better access to medical care, it is more common for neurologists who see children to have special training in pediatrics.
