Description:

According to a review of this book in the NEJM "...Assessment and care of the dizzy patient can be among the most challenging and frustrating tasks faced by busy clinicians. This difficulty is reflected in the fact that patients with vestibular disorders are often treated empirically in the absense of a satisfactory diagnosiss. This book is intended both as a reference tool and a consise, problem oriented guide...It covers all maajor aspects of the diagnosis, investigation and management of dizzyness. I recommend it to primary care physicians, neurologists and otolaryngologists who are interested in learning more about the diagnosis ans management of vestibular disorders. It would also be of great value to trainees in neurology and otolaryngology." It made the Brandon Hill list. A Review in Otolaryngology and Neurology said "It is an excelent text...and is certainly recommended as a must read for any resident as a beginning point in understanding dizzy patients. It is a useful reference text for the general otolaryngologist and primary care physician who occasionally manage dizzy patients and it is a wonderful summary of state of the art practical managment of vestibular patients for otolaryngologist on a regualr basis.
