Dizziness, vertigo and imbalance are common complaints, which can be frustrating – and dangerous.

  • Dizziness is the #1 issue reported to medical providers by adults 70 years of age or older.
  • Falls cause over 300,000 hip fractures in people over 65 years of age, and account for more than half of accidental deaths in the elderly.

The good news is that you don't have to live with dizziness, vertigo or imbalance.

Our comprehensive vestibular neurodiagnostic tests can uncover the root cause of your dizziness and imbalance sensations. We work with your primary care physician and/or medical specialists to resolve your balance issues.

Vestibular Testing is covered by most insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid.

If you are experiencing a loss of balance, unsteadiness, dizziness or vertigo/spinning sensations, we strongly recommend scheduling a vestibular test as soon as possible.
