I suffered from vertigo for several years. I went to urgent care, emergency room services and no one could figure it out so I suffered off and on for years. I had another round of this and went to primary doctor who suggested I see Dr. Bush. I went to Dr. Bush and within 20 minutes he told me what was wrong with my inner ear and even though it couldn't be permanently fixed he gave me ways to deal with the symptoms. My greatest relief was someone could finally tell me what was wrong.
