Vertigo, Dizziness and Balance

There are several different kinds of dizziness, including medical, neurological, psychiatric, and otologic.  We utilize a comprehensive evaluation of the vestibular system to determine if something in the ears is causing the dizzy symptoms.  The vestibular evaluation in conjunction with Dr. Holmes’ medical evaluation are used to effectively diagnose and treat our dizzy patients.

Electronystamography (ENG)

The ENG is a series of tests used to evaluate the vestibular system in the inner ear.  These tests are performed by recording and measuring eye movements in response to various stimulations.  This includes following some lights with your eyes, lying in different positions, and having some warm and cool air put into the ears.  These tests enable us to electronically determine the responses of the balance mechanisms of the vestibular system.
