Dizziness is a blanket term used to describe any feeling of unsteadiness. It is one of the leading health complaints in the United States, affecting an estimated 9 million people annually. For those over the age of 70, it’s the top reason for a visit to the doctor’s office. Balance problems are the result of your brain receiving false signals from the balance system, comprising the inner ear, eyes, and sensory nerves. It may sense movement and overcompensate, leading to a spinning sensation, weakness, and faintness. There are many possible causes of dizziness and vertigo, and our experts have the diagnostic tools to uncover the underlying cause of your disequilibrium and treatment options to keep you on your feet.

Went in for a VA disability evaluation. Mollie Sylvester was attentive and pleasant. Talked me through each part of the test and explained what each test was testing for. Mollie listened to my issues and concerns about my hearing loss, she was also very appreciative of my military service. That was the most thorough hearing test I have ever taken. I would definitely recommend this firm to any of my fellow combat veterans with hearing issues.
