I am 70, and have had Vertigo and motion sickness for years. He is the first and only doctor to diagnose what was causing my Vertigo. He took the time to explain everything, and he was not in a hurry to go see the next patient. I just wish I had found him years ago. He is definitely the doctor you are looking for, being as you're reading these reviews.
