The Johns Hopkins Voice Center would like to announce our voice screening program! The speech-language pathology team provides assessments to professional and semi-professional voice users, or any lay person experiencing vocal difficulties. This program may also be beneficial for healthy voice users as a tool to establish baseline vocal performance, which may be a source of comparison if one encounters problems in the future.
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:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. E-mail requests will be confirmed with a reply. Looking forward to sharing this great opportunity with you!
