THE COMPANY WE KEEP

It's said that we're all known by the company we keep. If that's true, then we have many reasons to be especially cheerful as the new year unfolds: the roster of clinicians, hospitals and research centers using our newly updated equipment continues to grow. A small sampling of clients using our Neuro-Otologic Test Centers (Barany chairs) includes James C. Andrews, M.D., F.A.C.S., a clinician in private practice, Los Angeles, California; Fairview Health Services (a group of seven hospitals, including the University of Minnesota Medical Center) in Minneapolis, Minnesota; the VA Medical Center - Richmond, Virginia, one of a number of Veterans Hospitals we serve; Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and, most recently, The Mayo Clinics, Rochester, Minnesota, and Scottsdale, Arizona. We'll be profiling users in future issues of Update. Want to be included? Please e-mail us at editor@neuro-kinetics.com.
