Dizziness and vertigo impact the quality of life of an individual – as well as their family.
Dizziness and vertigo are relatively common complaints seen in emergency rooms and medical clinics. In some instances, these symptoms can indicate a serious medical condition, such as a stroke or abnormal heartbeat. In most cases; however, the symptoms indicate a less-severe illness, requiring the help of your primary care provider.
To help identify the difference, attend the JRMC U: Dizziness & Vertigo class on Thursday, Aug. 17th. Ear, Nose & Throat Specialist Dr. C.P. Barton III is presenting.
Topics he’ll discuss include:
- Dizziness or vertigo: what’s the difference?
- Should medical tests be ordered?
- Will medications help? Are medications causing my dizziness?
- Can I be cured of dizziness?
- What are some preventive techniques?
- How does physical therapy help?
Dr. Barton joined JRMC in 2022. He is proficient and comfortable with the full scope of ear, nose & throat care for patients of all ages and enjoys serving and teaching his patients about their care.
