Why advocate for instrumental assessments for your patients?
The most important notion we, as communication and swallowing experts, must accept is that we cannot diagnose what we cannot see. Through use of FEES and laryngeal videostroboscopy, we are providing our patients with research-based, comprehensive, and cost-effective assessment measures of swallowing and voice function. At the same time, we are allowing you to directly visualize your patient's deficits.
Through use of this gold standard to assessment, Arizona Swallowing & Voice Diagnostics is able to provide you with comprehensive assessment results to guide your treatment sessions with your patients. This can lead to more effective interventions and better patient outcomes.
