About me

Dr. Laura Bliss is a pediatric neurologist who specializes in caring for children with cerebral palsy, headache, epilepsy, status epilepticus and other neurologic problems. Her research and clinical interests include exploring alternative epilepsy therapies, such as diet therapy and surgery, as well as examining the intersection between epilepsy and other complex medical problems. She chose this specialty because it gives her the opportunity to work closely with children and families as they face the challenges that come with pediatric epilepsy. Her patients teach and inspire her at every visit.

Outside of the hospital, Dr. Bliss enjoys reading, hiking with friends, finding new restaurants with her husband, rock climbing, tennis, ballet and aerial yoga. Dr. Bliss is a lifelong dog lover but she has found space in her heart for her grumpy cat, Roo.
