Chicago Dizziness and Hearing (CDH) is a private medical practice affiliated with Northwestern University. We are not located in Northwestern Memorial Hospital, but we are located a block west.

We specialize in diagnosis and treatment of dizziness and hearing disorders, including Meniere's disease. We also see many patients with migraine. We are happy to see complex patients.

CDH provides evaluations and treatment from two otoneurologists (Dr. Hain and Dr. Cherchi), and an neuro-optometrist (Dr. Sorenson) who treats visual vertigo and PPPD . We offer a full repertoire of hearing and vestibular tests. We have most of the necessary diagnostic tools on-site and usually we can get the diagnostic process over in one day.

Scheduling appointments can be arranged through email to or telephone (312-274-0197). If you want a sooner appointment, please make sure you have completed the questionnaire so we can put you on the waiting list. This page has more ways to contact us.

Please fill out and return a questionnaire to us at least one week prior to your initial visit.

Getting to the Office: Entrance is on Erie Street at the corner of Erie and Michigan. We validate parking for the Northwestern lots located at 321 E. Erie and 222 E. Huron. Patients pay $12 cash (or $13 credit card) for four hours.

Due to the Covid-19 situation we are taking extra precautions and deferring some of our usual thorough testing. We are also offering telemedicine for most follow-up patients. We suspended our physical therapy program in the office, substituting home exercise programs. We are seeing low-risk new patients in a normal fashion. As a result of our precautions, there are far fewer other patients that might be encountered if you visit us in person. Once the pandemic has resolved, we expect resumption of in-person visits to a greater extent.

Please note: It is CDH's policy that we do not perform services that are outside the scope of direct medical care. For instance, unless mandated by state or federal law, we will not do paperwork related to worker's compensation, disability, functional capacity evaluations, etc., nor do we respond to attorney queries.
