FEES is the gold standard
Speech Swallowing and Neurological Rehabilitation, or SSNR, is East Texas' premier mobile Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES).
We offer complimentary demonstrations of our FEES procedure and are happy to provide in-services regarding oral infection control protocol, free water protocol, and dysphagia management strategies. We encourage the facility SLP to participate in the evaluation. Under regulations for consolidated billing, the facility can bill for the FEES procedure and the SLPs treatment time so no loss in productivity. We provide a print out of our report immediately following completion of the evaluation.
We bill one flat rate so no hidden charges for cancelations or travel. We use the NDOhd system which provides the highest quality HD images with resolution better than the other scopes on the market While we guarantee we will complete our FEES procedure within 3 business days, evaluations typically happen with in 1-2 days after we receive the referral.
"We believe it is imperative that patients complete objective swallowing examinations in order to create effective and efficient plans of care to improve our patient's quality of life."
