Steenerson Clinic

Kristen Steenerson, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology — Head & Neck Surgery and, by courtesy, of Neurology

Dr. Steenerson

Dr. Steenerson focuses most of her energy on the clinical care of patients. She is a consultant, meaning she strives to diagnose and help direct primary neurologists, ENTs and primary care physicians on how to treat patients in the long term. She focuses on vestibular disorders that cause dizziness and imbalance. Due to a large amount of dizziness and imbalance in the world and only one Dr. Steenerson, wait times can be long; your patience is very much appreciated. 

If you would like to make an appointment, please fill out the below intake questionnaire or call (650) 723-5281 to start the scheduling process. Depending on your response, you may be instructed to obtain more diagnostic testing, evaluation by a different physician or you may be directly scheduled. As the inner ear and brain are dynamic organs, we do sometimes need to repeat tests that have been completed before to make sure there has been no change.
