North Dallas ENT is the home to the Baylor Scott & White The Voice Center, a multidisciplinary clinic for the diagnosis, treatment, and research of voice disorders.
We believe that one’s voice is the fundamental and essential form of communication. Our voice allows us to communicate not just with words, but through the emotion and intensity of the sound behind those words. Many people use their voice professionally, such as teachers, preachers, lawyers, and performers. All of us, however, depends on our voice daily for work and social interactions. No matter your vocation or your training, we treat every voice with unique attention and care.
“Hoarseness” is often excused as being associated with another illness, such as allergies.
Many people ignore vocal symptoms because they think, “that’s just how my voice sounds”. Hoarseness, or voice changes, should not be overlooked as they may be a sign of a more serious problem or be something that could be treated to improve your daily communication and quality of life.
The North Texas Voice Center offers specialized high-resolution imaging of the larynx (or voice box) and laryngeal videostroboscopy to analyze the biomechanics of the vocal fold (or vocal cord) vibration. Our team consists of Dr. Lindsey Arviso and Kim Coker CCC-SLP. Dr. Arviso works closely with Kim Coker who is a specialized Voice Speech Language Pathologist for comprehensive care of patients with surgical or rehabilitative voice needs.
