Philosophy of Care

I strive to provide comprehensive and compassionate care to all of my patients and families. I strongly value the relationships I get to form with families to empower them to best care for their children in a shared goal in optimizing quality of life and developmental potential.


Dr. Stowe completed his residency in pediatrics and child neurology at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital, where he was also chief resident in his final year. He then completed fellowships in sleep medicine and epilepsy at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. He joined the department as a staff physician in August 2020 seeing general neurology and epilepsy patients in the outpatient and inpatient settings.

Dr. Stowe's clinical and research interests lie in the complex interface of sleep, epilepsy, and genetics. This includes how sleep disorders influence seizure control, how epilepsy (and its care) influences sleep, and the utilization of chronopharmacology concepts in epilepsy care. He also has specific interests in nocturnal and sleep-related epilepsies, including ESES and Landau-Kleffner syndrome, and understanding sleep phenotypes of genetic neurodevelopmental and epilepsy disorders.
