Dizzy? Don’t forget about it! ENT doctors can help.

Millions of Americans will experience some type of imbalance or dizziness at some point in their lifetimes.  Many people just “wait to see if it will go away.”  Many more seek care from their primary care doctors.  What you should know is that the balance organ is housed in the inner ear and as ear, nose and throat specialists, we are uniquely qualified to evaluate and treat dizziness or imbalance.

Once you seek care from an ENT specialist, we will first perform a thorough ear, nose and throat evaluation including hearing testing.  If required, we would then perform additional ear testing.

Benign positional vertigo or B.P.P.V. is one of the most common causes of dizziness and can be readily treated by seeing an ear, nose and throat specialist.  We would perform in-office maneuvers go get you back on track.

So, if you or a loved one has experienced dizziness or imbalance, don’t wait for it to “go away.”  Call us and we can get you back to a “steadier” state.
