Patient Comments (7)
I have been a patient for Karen Sussman for many years. I have suffered from chronic cough intermittently. Karen recommended that I consult with a cough expert and ear, nose and throat doctor, Dr. Jamie Koufman. This referral from Karen has led me to new ways to cope with my chronic cough through dietary changes and medication. Karen is a wonderful vocal therapist who is kind, patient and has a good sense of humor. Thanks to Karen's referral I have found a doctor who can help me.

As an elderly choral singer, with a lifetime of sporadic but high quality vocal training , I had been finding it impossible to use my aging vocal apparatus without tension and strained effort. Karen's therapeutic attitude and professional experience supply me with techniques for reducing my stress while strengthening the aging physical equipment which time has worn down. She has reintroduced me to the joy of singing and to the delight of hearing and feeling my own voice.
Thank you for your kind review, Pat. I am so glad that you have now been able to enjoy singing again. Your passion for music is inspiring. Keep up the good work!

Karen has been working with my teen-aged daughter for over 5 years. Since the outset, Karen has been warm, engaging and skillful in her teaching approach. She makes singing fun, challenging and rewarding for my daughter. She has become a role model and significant figure in my daughter's life, offering her emotional support in a meaningful way. I whole-heartedly recommend Karen Sussman.
Thank you for your kind review. It is a pleasure working with such a smart, talented, and mature young woman! I know she will go far in all she pursues. I am proud and happy to be a part of her journey.

Karen creates a comfortable and fun environment. My 11 year old daughter enjoys her voice therapy lessons with Karen and actually looks forward to going to the sessions. We have noticed a marked improvement in the quality of my daughter's voice since starting. Karen makes the exercises fun and easy. Karen also explains the process to my daughter so that my daughter is engaged and an active participant in her voice recovery. I highly recommend Karen to anyone that needs an expert in Voice rehab
Thank you for your kind words. Your daughter is a pleasure to work with; she is so hard-working and motivated to improve. I am glad to be a part of her journey toward full voice recovery!
in Babylon, NY |
I am a professional singer who had some trouble with my voice's stamina and reliability after menopause. Karen's attention to vocal hygiene, and novel array of easy, gentle exercises gradually shifted my voice to a healthier place and has brought it completely back on line. She not only saved my career, but got me another few notes on top reliably too! Karen is a delightful, compassionate person, keeps up with the latest new techniques and insights, knows her subject, and makes sessions fun.
Dear April - It is a pleasure and privilege to experience first-hand the tremendous growth in your vocal mastery. It's wonderful to know that the techniques have helped to solve your vocal issues. Keep sharing your beautiful gift of voice with the world! So happy to be a part of this with you! Wishing you good health and good voice! Karen Sussman

Karen Sussman is amazing. She knows all the tricks of the trade. Just do what she says, and like magic, the voice is there. It is a miracle. I could not be happier. I thought I would be "croaking" the rest of my life. Not only does she know her craft, but she is kind, understanding, professional and a real person who LISTENS to you. Her office staff is also friendly and professional and I am always seen promptly. I have already passed her contact information on to others.
Thank you for your kind words. It is so gratifying to see how much you've improved using our vocal rehabilitation techniques. It is a pleasure working with motivated clients such as you. Keep up the good work! Vocally yours, Karen Sussman, Director Professional Voice Care Center
