Whether you have a problem that persists or another ENT has recommended vocal surgery, it behooves you to get another opinion (especially if that ENT is not a laryngologist (I highly recommend that you ask)). Most problems typically can be treated in multiple ways. I specialize in second opinions both in giving them and sending. I have an extensive network of top Laryngologists in the Greater Hudson Valley region to whom I can refer. Most important is that all videos and images are shared with you at the time of your visit so you will see the actual problem yourself and understand why there is an issue and what has to be done. If you bring a USB drive, I’m happy to share your video with you.
2:2 rule: If you have had 2 treatments or over 2 weeks of continued symptoms, you should have a second opinion!
