In attendance at the symposium were professionals from the fields of Otolaryngology, Audiology, Neurology, Rehabilitation, Internal, Integrative and Emergency Medicine, all working together to find ways to better treat and serve patients suffering symptoms of dizziness.
A Pioneer in the Optometric Treatment of Headache and Dizziness
If you’re new to the Neuro Visual Center of New York, you may be wondering what makes Dr. Cheryl qualified to speak at such a prestigious event. It’s simple, really. Dr. Cheryl was specially trained by Dr. Debby Feinberg of Vision Specialists of Michigan, herself a pioneer in neurovisual optometry. This specialized field focuses specifically on the diagnosis and treatment of binocular vision dysfunction (BVD), which often presents with symptoms of headache and dizziness. Dr. Cheryl is one of just a small number of optometrists in the country, and the only one in New York, trained in this specialty, which is why she was asked to share her insights and expertise about vestibular disorders at this event.
