General medicine, due to its interconnection with all specialties, has a high significance before any neurological examination.
Patients with vertigo as a symptom can be treated in orthopedics, ENT, internal medicine, general medicine and neurology.
The general practitioner works like an ideal gatekeeper and plays a central role to find out the right target-aimed therapy.
Before thinking about an MRI or CT scan, an accurate neurological examination should be done. It is highly recommendable to have some suspected diagnosis to minimize possible interpretation errors of the radiologist.
