Voice, swallowing, and upper airway expertise 

Emory Voice Center was founded in 2002. We specialize in diagnosing and treating voice disorders and voice problems. As we have grown, we have expanded our services to address laryngeal conditions of all types. This includes problems affecting swallowing and upper airway-related breathing difficulties.

We offer the latest innovations in diagnosis and treatment of such conditions and now have three fellowship-trained laryngologists and a team of specialized speech-language pathologists. Adam Klein, MD, Jeanne Hatcher, MD and Andrew Tkaczuk, MD see more than 5,000 patients and perform over 800 procedures each year.
