I do recommend Karen Sussman. My voice was very very hoarse and scratchy, almost to the point of having no voice. She worked with me through Zoom which was beneficial to me since I didn't have to take time from work. In 8 sessions my voice was back to normal. I also have a chronic cough which although has not gone away she gave me an exercise to do which helps a lot. She is very easy to talk to and very helpful. Thank you for all your help.

Karen worked with me for two months to help me deal with some deficits incurred after a tracheostomy. While certain physical issues resulting from surgical procedures could not be corrected, she taught me several techniques which aided in improving my voice quality. She is patient, kind, understanding, and non-judgmental. Her pleasant personality immediately put me at ease. Karen LISTENS and you can just feel that she cares, qualities that help to make a great training coach. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for professional, quality instruction with a personal touch.

Karen Sussman is a wonder. I came to her in December with no voice due to medical issues. I was very skeptical about ever having voice again. No one could understand me. I’m a teacher so my voice is absolutely necessary. I have been seeing her once a week as well as practicing the exercises she gave me. My voice has improved beyond my wildest expectations. Today she played the original recording from my evaluation to compare to the recording I made last week. I was amazed how far my voice has come. People can understand me. I will be continuing my voice therapy with her. I highly recommend her. She is great.

Karen is dynamic and easy to talk to. She is able to assess and make a treatment plan that addresses your needs. I went to her after having getting a respiratory illness where my voice changed. With her guidance and my perseverance in utilizing the tools and exercises that were given to me my voice returned. As a healthcare worker my voice is extremely important when communicating with patients, families, MD’s etc. I miss the interactions we had but glad to know she is only a phone call or a drive away.

I was referred to Karen by an ENT in Manhattan. I had a constant cough and little to no voice. I had been to numerous doctors with no results until I met Karen Sussman. She has taught me numerous exercises that have made my voice stronger. I am grateful to Karen for helping me believe that the right person can make anything possible. Thank you Karen. Maria P.

Some voice therapists are neither familiar with spasmodic dysphonia nor how to treat a patient so afflicted. There is no known cure. In the medical community, the treatment of choice is botox injections directly into the vocal cords. Karen Sussman, a voice therapist with working knowledge of the condition, provided me with vocal and breathing exercises extending the benefits of botox. I no longer feel isolated in group discussions or in noisy venues. Professional and fun to work with.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
