What happens during a dizziness/ vertigo evaluation?
Audiologists perform these evaluations to get a sense of your balance and determine possible factors causing vertigo symptoms. During a dizziness/ vertigo evaluation, you will be asked about your medical history, any medication you may be taking, and your experience with vertigo symptoms.
After this preliminary consultation, peripheral assessments and balance testing will be conducted. Depending upon the results generated, a recommendation for additional follow-up testing or referral to a specialist (such as a neurologist or otolaryngologist) may be provided.
