Kristen K. Steenerson, MD, is a board-certified neurologist fellowship-trained in vestibular neurology. She graduated cum laude from Claremont McKenna College. She completed medical school at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, followed by a neurology residency at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, where she served as chief resident. There, she discovered the unmet need of patients with vertigo and vestibular symptoms, motivating her to pursue a fellowship in otoneurology/neuro-otology at Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix. She joined Stanford Medicine with positions in both the Otolaryngology — Head & Neck Surgery and the Neurology & Neurological Sciences departments, with the goal of jointly addressing the junction of inner ear and brain disorders. Her specific interests include vestibular migraine, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, Ménière’s disease, and international neurology.
