Our Happy Patients

  • Marissa has shown me what I have been doing wrong for years. I can’t eat a thing without hearing her voice in my head. “Take your time!” “No big bites!” She also helps me speak LOUD. She is a wonderful MS specialist and I don’t know what I would do without her. Marissa and her staff are exceptional. They really know how to get the job done!
    -TS, Brooklyn, NY
  • Marissa and I met under sad circumstance when I was hospitalized for my MS. At that time, I needed a feeding tube to eat and sustain nutrition. Marissa helped me learn to use my tongue and swallow again. After a few months of treatment, my feeding tube was removed and I could eat. That was 4 years ago. Today, I still see Marissa 2 times a week for speech and memory training. I couldn’t imagine my life without her.

What happens during my initial visit?

Your initial visit consists of an extensive, in-depth, sixty (60) minute evaluation. During this diagnostic session, the therapist will listen to your history, learn about your symptoms, and hear your concerns and expectations for therapy. S/he will ask you a variety of questions to better understand your condition. Based on this initial evaluation, the therapist will outline a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan for your care. More

How often do I need to receive therapy?

There is no one answer to this question as no two patients are the same. Treatment frequency is dependent on your condition, your needs and your insurance coverage. While some patients come once a week for an hour, others come twice a week for 30 minutes treatment sessions or even more frequent. We strive to make therapy as convenient as possible and proudly offer Internet-based services as a treatment alternative. More
