Summary : Objective: Patients satisfaction and side effects assessment after vestibular tests. Materials and methods: Questionnaires were sent to 150 patients after vestibular testing in 2006. Forty-two questionnaires were sent back to us. On each questionnaire there were 5 questions regarding patient expectations, 4 questions about side effects after vestibular tests and one question was related to follow-up medical attention. Results: Most of the patients think that the delay between clinical consultation and vestibular test was not too long. Information patients received beforehand regarding vestibular tests aim, duration, possible side effects and diagnostic expectations are good enough for most of the patients. However, patientís assessment of the informed consent document and location of vestibular tests is diverse. The vast majority of patients feel «very important» to receive information about vestibular tests results on the same day. For most of the subjects caloric test is the most disconfortable tests. In the following days, more than half of the subjects feel vestibular symptoms. The most frequent suggestion we received from patients is to give them a phone calls after vestibular tests. Conclusion: It is worth mentioning the importance of informing the patient about vestibular test results upon completion. Our aim is to make some changes on the informed consent document given to patients and to make a phone call to patients after vestibular tests.
