Vocational experience

“I have had the pleasure of working with Dr Mark Jones over these past 6-7 years as a clinical colleague and fellow life-long learner. I have been impressed with the utmost quality and attention to detail that Dr Jones gives in his clinical EEG and QEEG work – in data acquisition, well exceeding minimal standards; in data analysis, using his extremely deep knowledge to address EEG concerns and QEEG findings; in report writing, producing among the most comprehensive, individualized, and clinically relevant report formats I have ever seen. His teaching skills are also excellent, and he offers a comprehensive QEEG course which serves as a thorough foundation leading to QEEG certification.”
–Robert P Turner, MD
Pediatric Neurology and Epileptology
“I don’t recall which meeting, but well over a decade ago, I met Mark Jones. He had students and interns, so we immediately had common ground. His students had good projects and he always asked good questions, staying on the leading edge of this rapidly evolving field, while never claiming excessively. Mark attended many of my workshops and EEG/qEEG group review sessions, as well as individual case reviews, even though he already has the required certifications. He has become one of the more reliable replies I see online advising both professionals and potential clients. Mark has a quiet way about him, but as the saying goes: ‘quiet waters run deep’. If you are reading this as a reference or review, you are likely looking for someone knowledgeable, trustworthy and professionally qualified. Look no farther than Mark.”
