Voice Therapy

Helping you regain vocal ability

Voice therapy at Adventist Health Glendale is designed to help reduce problems and changes in the voice such as hoarseness, vocal weakness/fatigue, hyper- and hypo-nasality, or loss of pitch range due to a variety of conditions.

To see if voice therapy might be right for you, answer the following questions:

  • Do you lose your voice when speaking?
  • Do people say you are speaking too softly and they can't hear you?
  • Is your voice often raspy or hoarse?
  • Does your voice sound like you are speaking through your nose or have a cold?
  • Is your voice too high or too low?
  • Is your voice affecting your job or career?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, we can help!

Some of the conditions we can treat are:

  • Age-related voice changes
  • Recurrent laryngitis due to allergies, tense muscles or excessive use of voice
  • Vocal cord nodules and polyps
  • Vocal cord paralysis
  • Laryngeal cancer or other cancers that may affect voice
  • Spastic dysphonia
  • Parkinson's disease and other neurological disorders

Our certified and licensed speech-language pathologists are specially trained and have the expertise to provide a comprehensive evaluation of voice production and develop a therapeutic program to improve vocal quality.

If you are having problems with your voice, it is important to consult with an otolaryngologist or an ear, nose and throat specialist (ENT). Your ENT will make the medical recommendation and referral for treatment. For a referral to an Adventist Health otolaryngologist or ENT, call (818) 409-8000.

All major insurances are accepted. To make an appointment with one of our speech-language pathologists or for more information, please call (818) 409-8071.

The outpatient speech clinic is located on the main floor of the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitative Medicine Building. Access our parking lot off Vallejo Drive.
