The entire staff has been informative, supportive, understanding, and encouraging since the very beginning. The relaxing atmosphere combined with the caring and compassion of the Speech-Language Pathologists make each visit a personal, enriching, and rewarding experience. The passion they have for their work and the outcome their efforts produce have equipped me and Serenity with lifelong skills that have successfully improved her eating and swallowing; making meals less stressful. Leaving will be bittersweet.
The sessions have been very beneficial. The therapists do a wonderful job of building relationships with the children. My son has overcome several chewing and swallowing issues. He is learning to try new foods, and is successfully adding them into his diet. Our dinner table is a much happier place!
"Joan and her staff really took the time to get to know my child and my family's needs to determine a realistic course of treatment that yielded results. She thinks creatively and compassionately and makes her office a warm, inviting place to visit. Joan took a very frustrating problem and turned it into a challenge we could overcome."
“What a difference they made! My baby was relaxed AND I was relaxed! None of the milk spilled out of her mouth and her suck seemed nice and strong. I look forward to learning more. Many thanks for your help. I feel like today was a quality of life breakthrough for our entire family (even the dog seems happier and less stressed)!
Thanks for all of your expertise and help with my daughter's development!”
"My son's experience at Carolina Pediatric Dysphagia has been very positive. Though there are physiological impediments he is working through, his therapist also understands his anxiety over food. He has gained confidence with eating and has fewer mechanical issues with eating. I highly recommend Carolina Pediatric Dysphagia."
“You have no idea how happy we were to get the info we did. We've been given the run around for quite some time on our son's progress and not provided many answers or guidance until now.
I told my husband that we got more info this morning in a 1 hour evaluation than in our son’s lifetime.
Thanks so much for your help and we look forward to seeing what's to come!”
"You have been such a huge blessing to our lives! I cannot thank you enough for the way you have helped Jayden!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
“I just want to let you know what an incredible difference you made! Our son used to get a tummy ache after *every* meal, had endoscopes and gastric emptying tests with no diagnoses. At his first visit, you noticed that his chewing technique was all wrong! No more tummy aches, it was like magic! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!"
"These ladies are amazingly patient, kind, & caring! ♡"
