Some portions of the testing may mimic the feeling of movement or imbalance. Most patients do well during the testing but we will work with you if you become sensitive to the movement sensation.
The testing can range from one and half hours to a maximum of two and a half hours, depending on the testing ordered.
For Balance Assessment appointments, we ask that you avoid eating three hours before testing, however, a small snack is fine if you need to eat.
The audiologist will discuss your dizziness symptoms with you, complete appropriate tests and discuss your results along with possible recommendations.
If you are currently dizzy or unsteady we suggest you bring someone with you that can drive you home after the testing is completed.
