I was released from the ER with the dx of vertigo. Dr. Sanders and others with Balance MD were thorough in evaluating the true problem which were migraines. With the Doctors treatment I have been doing much better. I felt heard, respected, and valued as a patient. Thank you Balance MD.

Dr. Scott Sanders is truly a lifesaver. After I was dizzy for far too long, an ENT referred me to him. It was a miracle. After several tests, he determined I was having a combination of headaches and vestibular issues. After therapy and medicine, I have my life back. I am forever grateful.

He is an ok Doctor for vertigo that has to do with vestibular issues. But for stroke issues no. He has no idea what to do.

Excellently! Was referred by my GP for dizziness. I was seen promptly. Dr. Sanders listened to my concerns and performed some tests. He instantly shared a video of my eye movements, which helped me understand why I was feeling so awful. He prescribed medicine that made me feel much better within a few days. I returned for an appt with the audiologist for further testing. She explained each test and was very reassuring about my recovery. I would highly recommend Balancemd to anyone!

I have been seeing Dr. S for many years. Although he has not solved my problems, it’s not from trying, nothing can cure my issues. He is kind and concerned about your health. Maybe bit cautious, but I would rather have that than overly aggressive. He does an excellent and thorough initial exam and answers questions directly. His office staff has good communications with Dr. S and urgent matters are addressed quickly. Patient Mike H
