Manderly Cohen, MS, CCC-SLP

Manderly Cohen is a certified Speech-Language Pathologist and Director of Speech and Swallowing at Michael Setzen Otolaryngology, PC.  She has a Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Columbia University. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Queens College and graduated Magna Cum Laude. She spent her clinical fellowship year at The University of Medicine and Dentistry in Newark, NJ, which is a level one trauma center. She worked closely with Dr. Setzen for five years at North Shore University Hospital before joining his private practice in 1999.  In addition, Manderly spent 9 years at New York Presbyterian Hospital as the senior FEESST (Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing with Sensory Testing) trainer.

Manderly has authored and co-authored numerous articles on the subject of FEESST. She has established several endoscopic swallowing programs with Otolarygologists specializing in dysphagia and voice disorders.

Speech and Swallowing Procedures:

During FEESST a thin, flexible fiberoptic telescope is gently passed via the nose to the pharynx. Manderly is able to directly assess the motor and sensory aspects of the swallow in order to precisely guide the dietary and behavioral management of patients with swallowing problems as well as evaluate the extra-esophageal manifestations of gastro-esophageal reflux (Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR)) including asthma, hoarseness, laryngitis, globus and aspiration.

Manderly also has specialty training in videostroboscopy. Videostroboscopy is a state-of-the-art technique that provides a magnified, slow-motion view of your vocal cords in action. It allows the speech-language pathologist to assess numerous vocal parameters as well as view abnormal motion and other disorders of the vocal folds. Videostroboscopy also greatly assists physicians in making an accurate diagnosis of vocal pathology including masses or lesions.
