About The Book

This book is designed to be a useful reference for the practicing Otolaryngologist, but is also appropriate for the ENT resident, medical student, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, or physical therapist dealing with dizziness.

It is also a helpful study tool on otology related topics for the otolaryngology boards.
