Speech Pathology

Speech Pathology

Greenville ENT’s Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP) are part of the multidisciplinary Greenville Voice Center team and the Head and Neck Cancer Team. We specialize in the evaluation and treatment of voice, swallowing, and airway disorders, as well as communication and swallowing problems related to oral, head, and neck cancer. We work closely with physicians to make personalized treatment plans for even the most complex problems—and love to find ways for patients to have fun while they’re on the road to getting better!
