I have to write a review for anyone that might need a pediatric or adult neurologist down the line because I am so incredibly impressed by our visit with Dr. Azzolino in SF, at Azzolino Chiropractic neurology and Integrative Wellness. My son has developmental delays and some muscle weaknesses that have been attributed to neurological abnormalities. We had been to a traditional neurologist at Stanford, only to be told the only option was an MRI.

Seeing this office online, I thought I’d give them a try before doing the MRI next summer. I am soo incredibly impressed at how pro-active Dr. Azzolino is. He gets the whole picture, not just the symptoms. And provided things I can do already to improve my son’s condition, from ipad apps, to spinning, to specific exercises, to testing all from a more functional medicine standpoint.

Mind you we are already doing physical therapy and speech therapy, but I was so impressed with the comprehensiveness of this neurologist compared to the traditional western medicine one. After leaving Stanford, I just kept thinking, there has to be something more I can do to improve my son’s condition, from nutrition to exercises, etc. And boy was I right. Visiting Dr. Azzolino was exactly what I was looking for. A doctor that would look at his symptoms from a medical, nutritional, and functional standpoint.

I’ve been seeing Dr Azzolino for jaw joint related pain (TMJ), a complication developed after a lengthy dental procedure. After 10 days of migraines I was directed to his office by a prosthodontist (bite specialist). Within 1 week all symptoms were gone, no meds were needed 🙂

VNG is the most highly regarded test for evaluating dizziness, balance and visual tracking disorders involving the vestibular system (within the inner ear). The patient takes a series of computerized tests of eye and head movements while wearing infrared goggles that transmit data to a computer. By measuring specific peripheral and central mechanisms governing eye movements as well as eye and vestibular reflexes, we can then assess the functional state of various areas of the patient’s brain.

With the results of VNG testing, we’re able to formulate specific brain-based rehabilitation programs that include eye and vestibular exercises.
