An evaluation includes gathering the patient's history, obtaining doctor's notes/referrals, and conducting formal and informal assessment tasks.
Therapy typically occurs weekly, once a week, for 30 minutes to an hour. The length of time varies but can last between four weeks to a few months.
As voice and swallowing specialists, we provide specialized procedures to diagnose and determine the best course of treatment. We collaborate with ENTs and laryngologists to determine the cause of each client's condition and effects of therapy.
The clinicians at Westside Voice and Swallowing also offer home visits to local residences and assisted living facilities for those patients with difficulty travelling. Disorders evaluated and treated include:
