The Neurology Department Welcomes Dr. Marcello Cherchi and Dr. Timothy Hain!

The Department of Neurology at UChicago Medicine is pleased to announce the addition of a world-class Otoneurology and Vestibular Medicine to its expanding range of services. The service will be staffed by Dr. Timothy Hain and Dr. Marcello Cherchi, bringing over 50 years of combined experience in the field.

The multidisciplinary service will operate at the UChicago Medicine River East facility and will include a streamlined yet comprehensive range of on-site advanced clinical diagnostic testing to evaluate disorders of equilibrium and hearing resulting from neurologic and otologic diseases. The service will provide outpatient consultation and second opinions on adult patients with symptoms of disequilibrium, vertigo, dizziness, lightheadedness, ataxia, and sometimes for ear symptoms such as hearing loss or aural fullness. We will begin offering service on April 10, 2023 with Dr. Hain’s arrival and expect to be fully operational by July of 2023 with Dr. Cherchi’s arrival.

Referrals to Dr. Cherchi and Dr. Hain can be submitted via Epic using the “outpatient referral to neurology” order, or by calling our neurology scheduling line at (773) 702-6222.
