Welcome

Difficulties swallowing can keep you, or a family member, from their place at the dinner table. Along with persistent coughing or clearing the throat, these can all be signs of dysphagia (dis-FAY-ja). Our clinic offers a complete dysphagia screening and treatment program, including VitalStim® Therapy – an FDA-cleared therapy program using neuromuscular electrical stimulation.
