Alan Desmond, AuD @ Dizziness Depot
Alan is the author of two textbooks, several book chapters, and two educational booklets for primary care physicians, all related to dizziness and vertigo. He is a co-author of the Clinical Practice Guideline for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, and represents the American Academy of Audiology at the American Medical Association. He is the founder/director of Blue Ridge Hearing and Balance Clinic in Bluefield and Princeton, WV.
The science of vestibular diagnosis and treatment is fairly specific and has been proven effective from both a cost and clinical point of view, but very few fully equipped balance clinics exist. Why is that? We will address this and many other related subjects in this blog. We will have input from the best in the balance business. Ask a question, comment on a post, agree, disagree, but we hope that you will enjoy and participate as you see fit.
Dr. Desmond currently resides in Davidson, NC with his wife and two teenage daughters. His professional interests are centered around helping primary care physicians effectively manage dizzy patients. On the home front, a well stocked kitchen, a good bottle of red wine and some good friends and family to share it with are all he needs. And maybe this lamp, and, oh, and that paddle ball game. That’s all I need. Maybe this chair…. (If you have never seen the movie “The Jerk” with Steve Martin, this makes no sense – Go see the movie).
