Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sulica "The Sean Parker Institute for the Voice, part of the Weill Cornell Medicine Department of Otolaryngology, provides the highest quality of care for patients with voice disorders, whether they are performers, public speakers or other intensive voice users, or people with more routine vocal demands.

Voice is essential in our personal and professional lives, but most people take it for granted. Anyone with a voice problem knows how limiting it can be; often, it is no exaggeration to call it disabling.  Although voice disorders affect more than 20 million people in the United States, finding specialized care can be a challenge.

The Sean Parker Institute offers expert diagnosis and sophisticated, effective treatment appropriate for each patient's vocal requirements. "

I had a wonderful experience with this office. They are keyed into the particular issues the performers have, and were able to make time to see me last minute. Dr. Sulica gets high marks from me for his great bedside manner, his thorough exam, his patience in educating me about the vocal chords, his honesty, his understanding of the theatre performer's complicated situation, and his sincere interest in helping me work through my vocal issues as a performer in the long term. Thanks!

Dr. Sulica took his time and listened. I completely felt that my time in his office was very much focused on my medical issue. His exam was thorough and he took the time to inform me of what was going on and what next steps would/could be. He is very knowledgeable and was also very approachable and kind. I am remiss in not remembering his colleague':s name- she conducted a few further tests and was also very informative. Office staff was also very good. I highly recommend Dr. Sulica.

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.

The most thorough and caring doctor.
in New York, NY |
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.
in New York, NY |
Dr. Sulica is EXCELLENT! He knows his specialist inside and out. He was a good listener, caring and compassionate. I HIGHLY recommend him !!!!
