Yes, a doctor's referral is required for therapy. We require a referral from an otolaryngologist (i.e., ENT). For voice related issues, we require a referral from a laryngologist, an ENT who specializes in the evaluation and treatment of the voice.
The initial evaluation is usually 60 mins long. Once it is completed, you will be provided with a treatment plan to meet your goals. A treatment (follow up) session can last up to 45 minutes. The frequency and number of sessions is determined by your SLP. A session is designed to help achieve your objective in collaboration with your SLP.
