In-Depth, Valuable Information About Vestibular Issues!

I’m so glad to have found this podcast. Dr. Oak is knowledgeable and generous with her information. It’s valuable. It’s helpful. Anyone with vestibular migraine, Meniere’s or other vestibular issues will benefit from this podcast.

Holding space for vestibular warriors!

This podcast does an amazing job at educating, raising awareness, and offering support for folks struggling with vestibular disorders. I love that each episode offers a different perspective based on the guest and their expertise. Looking forward to the next episode! Thank you!

Brilliant

Dr. Madison Oak is one of those rare geniuses in the world of medical complexity and uncertainty. Vestibular disorders are life-altering and frightening and too few providers - even so called experts - know how to successfully treat them AND empower patients to find their energy, joy, and hope again. Dr. Oak (or Dr. Madison as she goes by) is truly that kind of visionary. I’m thrilled that she’s brought her knowledge to yet another medium to spread her message near and far.
