Dizziness and Balance Centers of America is the only locally owned and operated audiology private practice in the Greater Houston area dedicated exclusively to the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients suffering from vertigo, dizziness or imbalance. We have one of the most comprehensive and state of the art laboratories in Texas, as we are one of the two clinics in Houston with rotary chair testing for dizziness.
Why should you choose us?
No matter what you need, a simple hearing test for a physical, assistance with pairing your hearing devices to your cellphone, to a comprehensive vestibular evaluation or a repositioning maneuver for vertigo, we are here to help you!
At Dizziness and Balance Centers of America you will not see a technician, as all services at our center are performed by a doctor of audiology who is highly trained in audiological and balance assessment and management. Our one-on-one approach lets you receive the personal attention needed.
If you are interested in hearing aids, our audiologist is trained in the latest hearing aid technology and will take the time to listen to your needs to guide you to the most appropriate hearing aid technology for your hearing loss, budget, and lifestyle. Our office also provides free hearing aid trials if you would like to try before you buy. Also, we offer very competitive pricing for top hearing aid brands such as Oticon, Widex, and Phonak in an unbundled model, meaning you only pay for the services you need.
We offer same-day or same-week appointments. Our report is completed within 2 business days. We have limited appointment slots, so we schedule one patient per slot. Therefore, our appointments are always on time and we will not rush you, as we will take our time to make sure all your questions are answered. If someone is bringing you to the appointment, we have a spacious and comfortable waiting room with Netflix and refreshments to wait comfortably. Our friendly audiologist and staff are Bilingual in English and Spanish. In addition, we work closely with a licensed physical therapist for patients in need of balance or vestibular retraining therapy, or establishing a fall prevention program. We are certified by VEDA (Vestibular Disorders Association).
Although we mostly see adult patients, we see children as well. Please give us a call for more information on our testing that can be modified for pediatric testing.
