Customer Question
My wife has a...

My wife has a dizziness disorder that may cause her to be nauseated and a balance problem. Does the Mayo Clinic have a division that determines the extent of that disorder or can you recommend another national clinic that treats inner ear disorder.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the ear issue? Have you had any colds or flus recently?

About 18 months. No colds or flu recently.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

She was told she had Autonomic Dysfunction but testing at Vanderbilt University Medical Center does not reveal AD. She is 80 years old.

I am sorry that your wife is dealing with these issues. Fortunately, the Mayo Clinic does have a balance therapy program and they will have testing capabilities to further evaluate her balance issues. If you have access to the Mayo Clinic you should definitely go. Hope that helps.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
