Our certified and licensed speech-language pathologists are trained to evaluate and treat disorders that affect your speech, language, cognition and swallowing. Using personalized treatment plans we help you restore or improve your communication abilities and your cognitive function.

Our Speech Therapists are specialists in the evaluation and rehabilitation of swallowing disorders. If a patient’s condition requires it, the Speech-Language Pathologist or Physician may recommend a Modified Barium Swallow Study for diagnostic evaluation of swallow function.
