About

Bio

I am board certified in neurotology. Neurotology is a subspecialty devoted to treatment of diseases of the ear and related structures. I have been in practice since 1992.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

As such, labyrinthitis causes hearing loss (typically in one ear) and dizziness. If you are having dizziness without hearing loss, then you do not have labyrinthitis.
