The American Institute of Balance
Neurodiagnostic Vestibular Evaluation
Evaluation is recognized as the gold standard to determine the cause of the patient’s dizziness quickly and develop a focused treatment plan.
In the U.S., on average an otolaryngologist
uses ICD-10 R42 (dizziness and giddiness) 80 times per month. These patients, however, are rarely fully evaluated or provided a specific plan of care if not medical or surgical candidates.

What Are OtoLabTM Otolaryngologists Saying?
The American Institute of Balance has become an instrumental part of our ENT practice. They offer an incredibly comprehensive service which has been a great addition to the offerings for our patients. Our partnership with AIB allows us to offer gold standard care to dizzy patients and has been a great way to grow our practice through ancillary services. I would strongly recommend partnering with AIB to any ENT looking to help patients with dizziness or imbalance.
Neurodiagnostic testing has been a great addition to our busy Neurotology practice. Patients, staff, and physicians appreciate having a one stop point of care providing timely, streamlined state of the art assessments for complex balance conditions. The American Institute of Balance has been an invaluable partner in this endeavor allowing us to expand our referral base. The equipment, staffing and training process, and support over the years has been excellent and we look forward to continuing being the reference point for balance disorders in North County San Diego.
I have had the pleasure of working with AIB for 20 years. During this time, they have always taken great care of our patients and provided us with world class service.
