Program Description


Dizziness is one of the top 3 chief complaints of all primary care doctor visits but the word “dizzy” does not convey clear meaning to the doctor. This presentation will review how the balance system works, how to think about your own symptoms, and how best to communicate this information to your doctors so they get you on the right track to diagnosis and treatment.
