Ear, nose,& throat physicians are frequently asked to evaluate balance disorders. Almost 1/3 of the American population experiences some form of dizziness by age 65. Often acute balance disorders resolve on their own. However some patients develop chronic balance problems. Our practice offers diagnostic testing such as Videonystagmography (VNG) to evaluate the balance system. VNG testing is a localizing study that helps to detect if your dizziness/vertigo/equilibrium problem is from the central nervous system, brainstem, or peripheral vestibular portion of the inner ear itself.

Essentially, non-cosmetic facial plastic surgery such as skin lesions, moles, skin tags, skin cancers with reconstruction are common proceedures performed by our physicians.
