This site represents my opinions and is my attempt to inform you, the visitor, about voice disorders from a physician's perspective. It is specifically not meant to establish a doctor-patient relationship with you. I have an office in Portland, Oregon, United States, where patients wishing to be seen and establish a relationship may reach me.
If you would like a summary of diagnosing voice disorders, that would be best available in a book I have written, published 2012, "Why is there a frog in my throat? A guide to hoarseness."
All of the content on this site, including photos and videos, are available for your use under a creative commons license which allows you to use the content for non-profit or educational purposes at no cost, as long as you attribute its source.
The information on this site represents my understanding of the voice and is primarily related to my studies, first with other physicians, most particularly laryngologists, and the self-teaching that goes on from seeing many voice disorders everyday. Journal references are provided occasionally. This site has not been peer reviewed (like most websites), as a medical journal would be. There is no advertising on the site. Please understand the contents of this site and probably most sites with medical information in this light.
