Expertise

Specializes in the evaluation and treatment of motor speech disorders and swallowing disorders resulting from neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, multiple sclerosis and ALS (including videofluoroscopic swallowing examination and videostroboscopic voice examination).
