“I was given an appointment immediately and even though I had to change it, it was handled quickly. Kaley did the Epley maneuver and I felt immediate relief from my vertigo, the same result I had in April. (Thank you very much Kaley) I also had a hearing test which was conducted quickly as well. I have another appointment next month if needed. Altogether a very satisfying experience. ”
