“I had never been scoped before and I was pretty nervous, but Dr. Desloge's calm and kind manner made the whole process very easy. She explained what she was doing and why every step of the way, which was very helpful. I highly recommend her for singers - I went in to be scoped vocally and was pleased to find that she knows and understands singing terminology and works with many performers.”
“Dr. Desloge is a wonderful ENT. I am a singer and felt very safe in her hands….. She walked me through all of the anatomy of the throat and made me feel extremely comfortable.”

“As a singer, my voice is crucial to my livelihood and she understands that and is able to put things into terms that I understand and can apply to my profession.”
“This was my first ever visit to an ENT, which was far overdue as I freelance as a professional singer….She was incredibly patient as I voiced my concerns, and explained everything that was going on extremely clearly. I also really appreciated how she referred to everything in the context of my singing work.”
