We treat ear, nose and throat problems in people who use their voices extensively, including:
- Call center employees
We see patients ages nine and up, teens and adults. You'll meet with both a doctor and a speech language pathologist, often at the same time.
Using the latest high-definition video technology, our team can get a detailed look at the vocal cords to identify issues. Vocal rehabilitation is provided by our specialty-trained speech pathologists. We strive to give each patient the kind of care normally available only to well-known performers.
