Neurologist: would recommend seeing a neuroologist if symptoms have been present for signficiant period of time. Need to rule out benign vertigo vs central causes of dizziness.

Needs further evalua: Does he get dizzy when he turns our bend his neck? He may have instability. He needs a full cervical xray exam including bending views to check for instability. What did the MRI of the cervical spine show? Is there stenosis or cord compression? He should not have any manipulations on his neck any more. If his surgeon can not figure out what is going on, does not hurt to get a second opinion.
