The Balance Disorders Laboratory (BDL) is a diagnostic clinic where specially-trained audiologists conduct tests, the results of which help physicians determine the cause of dizziness, disequilibrium and vertigo. Together with physical therapists at the Pi Beta Phi Rehabilitation Institute, the BDL also conducts assessments of patients who may be at risk for falling. Through this assessment, these specialists can determine what factors place a patient most at risk for falls and make recommendations to the referring physician for reducing that risk. Our goal is to help keep independent seniors independent.
