Dear Dr. Cooper,

In 1995 after giving birth to my first child I slowly noticed that my voice was different. At first I thought it was a result of the difficult delivery that I had and 20 hours of labor. Gradually it began to get worse and people began to notice. I eventually went to see a ENT and he said if it doesn't get better I would need to see a speech therapist. Well, it didn't get better and needless to say that started an endless search going from doctor to doctor to hypnotist to chiropractors to psychologist in an effort to get help. I finally ended up at the 4th best head neck and voice center in the country.

Dear Doctor Cooper,

I hope this letter finds you well. Enclosed, please find a tape of a sermon I gave recently at a small church in North Jersey. I have been preaching now for the past year and have also been able to present major papers at conferences here and in Brazil and Africa—something I would not have dreamed of doing only a couple of years ago. I’m grateful for your help back in January of 2005 when I met with you and our small group those 2 weeks. Its taken me awhile—Ph.D’s are slow learners, I guess—but I finally feel like I can talk in public in most situations.

17-Year Update

In April 1995, upon referral from my family care physician, I went to see an otolaryngologist in Oregon to address the chronic hoarseness in my voice, with the feeling of 'a lump in the throat' and occasional 'voice just going out' which I had been experiencing. As an educator this illness was particularly difficult.

Excellent Voice Recovering from surgery to remove a tumor from the thyroid gland, Dr. R. found his voice was hoarse, lacked carrying power, and faded or failed within a few minutes of conversation. Rather than have a teflon injection into the paralyzed vocal cord, Dr. R. elected to try direct voice rehabilitation. His surgeon, William Longmire, M.D., UCLA Medical Center, referred him to me. I realized, from what Dr. R. told me, he had been having voice trouble before his surgery without knowing it. His voice had been failing and fading, but he assumed this was normal.

Dear Doctor Cooper:

As we discussed I have attempted to outline my past and present situation relative to my voice problems. As you recall I was diagnosed with SD about 6 years ago by Dr. Bastian and then again by Dr. Brin. I went thru a course of Botox injections first under Bastian, (12 botox shots) then Brin (5 botox shots). I pingponged between Dr. Bastian and Dr. Brin for a total of 17 Botox shots. My first injection from Dr. Bastian yielded what I would now consider to be excellent results for a period of a little over 6 months. Subsequent botox shots failed to replicate the first excellent result by Dr. Bastian that lasted over six months. The seventeen Botox shots in all covered a period of four years. None of them worked. Most times, the downsides of breathy voice far out-weighted the slight upside I experienced for a short period of time.

How I got cured of my Spasmodic Dysphonia with Dr. Mort Cooper.

I’m a voiceover actor and have been living with Spasmodic Dysphonia for over ten years. Since my voice is my livelihood, being struck with this condition severely compromised my career, my self-esteem and self-confidence about this business that I love. Prior to working with Dr. Cooper, my life was filled with vocal struggle and pain, surgeries, several misdiagnoses as well as personal, financial and professional loss. What was once a thriving existence turned into a bleak day-to-day challenge that left very little hope or positivity [sic].

Dear Dr. Cooper,

I thought I would write and tell you about my progress since I left the U.S. You can add my letter to your already thick file of testimonials.

I think my voice is quite a bit better than when I first went to see you. I am very glad I went to see you...my quality of life has improved by leaps and bounds. Thanks for your help and concern.

2003 Update: 90% Success

I sure am glad to know that you are doing well and still helping people with their voice problems. I am very glad that you are now helping another person from Tallahassee with SD and such a nice person as that - John Paul Walters (see John Paul Walters glowing testimonial). Why does this condition seem to strike the nicest people? Is it because we hold too much back until we are strangled? Does make you wonder doesn't it?
