Swallowing diagnostics

Our swallowing diagnostic services are performed using the gold-standard in assessments, FEES. FEES is a Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing that is performed by a trained speech-language pathologist. FEES assesses swallow function using real-time video imaging allowing the therapist to make immediate dietary and positioning recommendations for safe swallowing.  Contact us today for a free consultation and demonstration of our evidence-based diagnostic solutions.

Voice Diagnostics

Our voice diagnostic services are performed using videostroboscopy. This evidence-based procedure allows the trained speech-language pathologist a magnified view of the vocal cords in slow motion. This minimally invasive, out-patient evaluation is suitable for children, teens, and adults. Following the evaluation, you will receive a detailed report, imaging, and personalized recommendations.
