Specialized services for patients who have undergone treatment for head and neck cancer
Our licensed speech-language pathologists work with internal medicine physicians and otolaryngolgists (Ear, Nose & Throat physicians) to evaluate, create a treatment plan and implement it for each individual patient. Our staff has a depth of experience treating people with a variety of diagnoses and we have many pieces of equipment to assist the therapists in achieving the goals that you and they jointly set. We have therapists with unique certifications in these areas.
A physician's referral is required for service. You may choose from one of three sites to receive your therapy. To schedule an appointment at any of our three sites please call (315) 787-4572.
