Hudson, NY |
I' was sent to Dr. Sulica 10 years ago with a vocal hemorrhage and a cyst on my vocal cord and he removed the cyst perfectly. I can credit him with saving my voice and he has been treating me ever since. He is kind and always finds time for me in a pinch. I recommend him to everyone.

He is extremely knowledgeable, takes time to thoroughly understand your medical history and is compassionate. Highly recommended. I selected him for vocal cord surgery after seeing several top voice doctors and am happy with my decision and the result.

The most thorough and caring doctor.

Dr. Sulica knew right away that my symptoms all pointed to adductor dystonia. He was very patient as I tried to explain my symptoms. His staff were also very friendly and I never felt rushed. I waited only a few minutes after filling out my paperwork. Adductor dystonia is quite frustrating as I can barely make sounds when I speak. Understanding it better after being examined has definitely helped me have peace of mind. I received reading material to take home. Overall, the visit was excellent.

Dr. Sulica listened to my problem, examined the issue, and thoroughly explained what he saw and what he thought was going on and thoroughly explained my options for treatment. Follow-up visits were handled in a similar manner. He has a great bedside manner and I am confident in his abilities to diagnose and treat my problem.
