"Fixing my vertigo problem"

About: Prince of Wales Hospital / Emergency Department Prince of Wales Hospital / Occupational Therapy Department

(as the patient),

After seeing a private doctor and then being admitted to the Emergency at Prince of Wales Hospital (PoW), I was admitted for 2 days to fix my bad vertigo. 

The Neurologists tried their techniques to the best of their ability to fix my vertigo until I was able to be discharged. Unfortunately, my vertigo relapsed within a couple of days. 

I was then referred to PoW's Senior Occupational Therapist, Dr Ross and after 4 detailed visits, he was able to fix my vertigo. He was so friendly and caring and professional in his treatments.

He's been specialising for over 30 years in just seeing vertigo patients and is invaluable in seeing so many people with this awful sensation. He trains many students in the techniques to cure and recognise symptoms of vertigo. 

Thank you so much for your help.
