Neurologist input: This is the so specialist you need to see at this stage, whether an MRI is needed or not, history and physical by an expert neurologist / epileptologist is what you need, start the first step by your GP, best wishes

See a neurologist: Obviously, if your spouse has had a seizure he should be seeking medical care, if not done so already. He should be contacting his health care provider to be seen promptly in order for further assessment. Seeing a neurologist would be helpful to better define and provide a diagnostic assessment of the potential causes of the seizures.
