Dr. Sanders is the best. After telling me my vertigo was being caused by vestibular migraines I thought he was going in the wrong direction. He was 100% correct and has given me my life back. The best doc in Indy and maybe the country. He is the best.

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

Dr. Sanders was very thorough and knowledgeable. He made me feel welcome and listened carefully. It was very reassuring to be referred to the audiologist in his office and he gave me further options to pursue if I have any issues in the future. The office staff was nice and friendly. I also really liked the audiologist. She was trained in many more things than just hearing tests. Very thorough.

I have experienced dizziness since November, 2015 (5 months). After running some tests and asking me a few questions, my family doctor referred me to Dr. Sanders. I was 100% impressed with his diagnosis and treatment and would recommend him to and my family and friends without hesitation. Thank you Dr. Sanders, the dizziness is gone!!

Very disappointing. I've had blurred vision for a year. He did standard eye tests I've already had done and told me I have 20/20 vision even though I could not see any of the letters on the wall clearly and in fact told him many looked like 8- That is indicative of 20/20??? He looked at my medications and found one that my doctor prescribed for hot flashes and immediately jumped on that and asked me if I was depressed? I can't freaking see road signs!! I can't drive!! But it's all in my head??!
