Gretchen Von Allmen, M.D., is an Associate Professor at McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth).
Board certified in neurology with special qualifications in child neurology, Dr. Von Allmen treats patients up to 18 years old and speaks French.
Dr. Von Allmen believes every child with epilepsy deserves a complete evaluation with an individualized management and treatment plan. She takes care to listen to each child’s story and concerns, always making herself available and never giving up on improving care and seizure control.
She emphasizes a personal touch and enduring relationships with patients and families. Her practice offers proactive evaluation to achieve freedom from seizures or optimal control of seizures, as well as early consideration for options such as epilepsy surgery, VNS (Vagus nerve stimulation therapy) and ketogenic diet.
A resident of Houston, Dr. Von Allmen is the mother of two sons. Outside of her practice, she enjoys running, triathlons, tennis, being outdoors and traveling, especially to France, Germany and Latin America.
