Dr. Danielle Tate is a physical therapist specializing in the evaluation and treatment of patients with vestibular and balance dysfunction. She obtained both her BS in Healthcare Management as well as her Doctor of Physical Therapy from Misericordia University in Dallas, PA. In addition, she completed and successfully passed the Vestibular Competency Course presented by Duke University School of Medicine and the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) in Atlanta, GA. It was in Physical Therapy School that she became a true “Vestibuloholic”, where she had a 10-week clinical rotation with a vestibular specialist at the Otolarygology, Vestibular, and Balance Center at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, PA. A few years later, she developed the educational version of a 3D printed model of the Vestibular Organ for both patient and clinician education. In order to share her educational model, she founded Vestibular Today, a website dedicated to sharing interesting patient cases, educational videos, and vestibular-related research.
Dr. Tate brings her passion for raising awareness about vestibular dysfunction into the community offering free presentations at senior centers and for local organizations. She also created and presented lectures for audiological practices and Doctor of Physical Therapy programs regarding vestibular testing and treatment.
Dr. Tate is a proud Board Member of the Vestibular Disorders Association (VeDA), where she also serves on the Legislative Advocacy Committee, and Professional Development Committee. She is also a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).
