An episode of seizure

Lost faith on current docter. Need help in identifying the correct doctor. Out of the blue, I experienced an episode of seizure lasting 2 mts for the first time in life in March 16. Was hospitalised for a day. Treated by a Neurologist. All reports Ok except EEG with mild deviations. Stress was identified as perhaps the trigger. Was put on medicine Eptoin 100mg (1 x mor & 2 x eve). After 6 month evaluation my Phenytoin level report put the figure at 6.4. My dosage was increased to 150 mg (1x alternate mor & 2 x eve). Latest phenytoin level was at 6.4 again. Currently I am suffereing psychological side effects such as severe anxiety, over emotional, loss of confidence, low risk appetite among others. I have lost faith on my current doctor. He is rude, over confident and more importantly, his verification process on your site is still pending. Could you please suggest what qualifications am I to look for in a new doctor who can understand the problem and advise accordingly.

Blackouts for few seconds

Good evening all, My neice has been experiencing blackout for a sec or two once a while. It happens very randomly and happens even at sleep. She almost collapses for a second and then regains Control on body. She has no clue about when it would happen again. We are very concerned about this and would like some guidance on what type of specialist to visit. Is this a sign of a bigger issue in future?
