Neurologist 's  Response

From your query i read you have high platelet count (thrombocytosis) with the above mentioned disease.

Consult neurologist for clinical evaluation for dizziness.

If you were my patient here I would refer to hematologist for raised platelet and white blood count, as this can also cause dizziness.
