Experience in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Vestibular Disorders at BalanceMD

What is the Experience of Physician and Staff?

Experience of Physician


In addition to fellowship training in neuro-ophthalmology, Dr. Sanders has traveled around the United States learning from the experts in vestibular medicine since 2003.  He has attended multi-day seminars at Cleveland Clinic on several occasions.  He has attended a multi-day course at Emory University in Atlanta and other seminars, including the 2011 otolaryngology (ENT) physician conference in San Francisco.  Dr. Sanders' medical practice became more focused in the evaluation and treatment of those suffering from 'dizziness' in 2007 and currently 75% of what he does on a daily basis is related to the diagnosis and treatment of those suffering from 'dizziness'.  

Dr. Sanders currently evaluates approximately 900 “dizzy” patients per year and in a recent follow-up study of 6 months of consecutive patients, 91% reported either significant improvement, or they were cured of their dizzy symptoms or imbalance.
