Our interdisciplinary team includes speech language pathologists (and pediatric speech language pathologists), who are experts in voice, speech, singing, and swallowing therapy, as well as laryngologist who have additional training and experience in the diagnosis and medical and behavioral management of disorders of voice.  Additionally, we involve specialists in neurology, gastroenterology, pulmonology, radiology, and surgical pathology to provide comprehensive care. Working together with you, we draw on the newest therapies—employing minimally invasive procedures when necessary—to design a treatment plan that helps you achieve the best possible vocal health.
