Voice screenings are offered on the last Tuesday of every month from 3:00 - 5:00 pm; the charge for the screening is $15.00 that may be paid at the time of the appointment.
Your voice screening will include:
- A review of your voice history to identify any potential problems.
- Visualization of the larynx with a small endoscope (camera) that is passed (painlessly) through the nose. This is optional for the squeamish, but the most objective way to look at the vocal cords.
If there is any indication of a voice disorder, you will be referred for a full voice evaluation under the supervision of both a physician and speech-language pathologist to make a formal diagnosis. A full evaluation will require a referral from your primary care physician, and you will be required to ensure authorization and coverage by your insurance. If you have questions regarding your insurance coverage for a full voice evaluation, please call 443-849-2087.
Speech-language pathologists cannot provide a formal diagnosis but can isolate need for further evaluation with a physician. At that time, the two professionals will discuss your case and determine any need for therapy, surgery, medications, etc.
Participants may register by calling 443-849-2087, or e-mail questions or to email@example.com. E-mail requests will be confirmed with a reply.
Looking forward to sharing this great opportunity with you!
