Patient Perspective

New Patient Toolkit

Become Your Own Healthcare Advocate

Many patients who are experiencing dizziness, vertigo, imbalance, and other symptoms that accompany a vestibular disorder feel lost, confused, frustrated, and overwhelmed by the lack of understanding prevalent among their family, friends, and coworkers, and even the medical community.

You are not alone

Vestibular disorders are real, medical conditions. You may have been told that your symptoms are all in your head – they are not!

Vestibular disorders are underdiagnosed and undertreated. Many patients visit multiple healthcare practitioners over months or even years before they receive an accurate diagnosis. We can help you learn about your condition so that you can be an advocate for your own healthcare. Our provider directory will help you find qualified vestibular specialists who can diagnose you quickly and provide effective treatment.
