The wait lists for vestibular assessment are very long. Are there any private testing facilities in Canada?
Unfortunately the wait lists for vestibular testing in the public system are indeed very long.
Some of the hospital services in Canada have an urgent or expedited testing policy; whether this is your case or not will be determined by your referring physician at the time of your consult. You may also be able to get an early appointment if you can be available on short notice and ask to be put on a cancellation list.
However, there are a few private facilities in Canada that currently offer formal vestibular assessment. To find them, use our online Practitioners List – limit your search to audiologists.
