A non-instrumental evaluation of your swallowing function.

Clinical Swallowing Evaluation 

A clinical swallowing evaluation is a non-instrumental evaluation of your swallowing function. The clinician will ask a detailed history of your swallowing complaints. Then the clinician will complete an examination of the muscles of your face and throat. You will be given different types of foods and liquids to assess how the muscles of your face and throat are working together to swallow. Recommendations will be discussed with you at the time of the exam, and a report is sent to the referring physician.
