Seizure Disorder: You didn't mention the age. Sure, you can have a second opinion always. She is already on three meds. Given by her neurologist. It will be better if you take her to a pediatric neurologist at an university setting, evaluate as in-patient with video monitoring- if not already done.

Childhood seizures: You need to contact a pediatric neurologist. Your pediatrician should be able to recommend one. If you are located near a medical center, contact the department of pediatric neurology for a referral.

Pediatric neurologis: A neonatologist is capable to give you a second opinion but since the seizure are so unusual, he/she will likely get a pediatric neurologist's opinion so you can start directly from that point. Good luck!
