Medical Referrals for Voice:
Some kinds of vocal difficulty may require medical attention. See an otolaryngologist (a doctor who specializes in working with the ear, nose, and throat, also called an ENT) to get a proper diagnosis. Often they will "scope" you, which involves sending a small camera into your throat to see what is really happening.
If the doctor's diagnosis warrants it, a speech pathologist may work with you afterwards to help you learn how to manage and improve your condition.
