As an actor/singer my voice and its health are my top priority. Whenever I feel something is amiss, needs attention, and/or corrective action my first call is to Dr. Gupta. She is a wizard at identifying any problems early on and attacking them with precaution and precision, all while providing a sense of calm and ease to an otherwise emotionally taxing situation. On multiple occasions she has been available for consults over the phone, video chat, and emergencies in person to get me back into working order. I cannot recommend her enough. THE BEST!

Before 2016, I never understood the importance of regular visits with a laryngologist. After over 15 years of singing professionally, I almost waited until it was too late and my vocal folds were beyond repair. It was the great work of Dr. Reena Gupta implementing a (then) new technique to repair a dilated blood vessel in my vocal fold. She was able to miraculously restore my voice and save my career with her innovative surgical techniques. Though it must be mentioned she believes in exhausting every therapeutic option until surgery is the last recourse. I trust Dr. Gupta implicitly with my vocal life and continue to recommend her to my colleagues. I’m forever in her debt for how she healed me and she is invaluable to the vocal community at large.

Dr. Gupta has been such a blessing on my journey as a working vocalist! Three years ago, she discovered a small polyp on my vocal cord and it took me until this past July to say YES to having her remove it. The blame and shame game is not allowed in her office, as she reminds you that injury happens, even to those with the best vocal hygiene and technique. Dr. Gupta’s pre-surgery and post-surgery care and concern has been above and beyond what I could have hoped for. She truly understands how voice use is connected to our identity and souls and I would recommend her expertise to anyone experiencing issues. Thank you, Dr. Gupta!

I had gone to multiple doctors and was unable to find an explanation for why I was having vocal problems. Feeling at a dead end, an instructor of mine recommended Dr. Gupta to me. On our first meeting Dr. Gupta not only discovered what was causing my problems, but she showed me it on a scope, explained in depth what it meant and why it was an issue, and recommended surgery. As a singer, I felt sick at the thought of vocal surgery! Dr. Gupta was patient with me, and when I did decide to have the surgery it was truly a lovely experience. Her and her team were such a blessing that they had me laughing through it all! I healed a week earlier than I expected and the results exceeded my expectations. Not only is Dr. Gupta the best of the best, she truly cares and is a joy to be around.

As an international rock / metal singer and vocal instructor, I take vocal health very seriously. During a long and arduous tour in North America, a long way from home, I lost my voice and needed help at very short notice. On the day of a very important showcase event in LA, Dr Gupta managed to fit me into her busy schedule at the last minute and went above and beyond in caring for me. I had a throrough examination of my vocal cords and was given a manual procedure to release my voice. Amazingly, I recovered and the show was a success! I cannot thank Dr Gupta for her time, caring nature and the reassurance she gave me that day. It’s obvious Dr Gupta has a real passion for her speciality and I highly recommend her to anybody with a vocal issue. I now have someone to rely on if I ever need checking out in the future. Thank you!

My experience with Dr. Gupta was unlike anything I could have imagined. Being a singer/songwriter at the very final stages of finishing up my EP and figuring out release dates, this surgery could not have come at a worse time. My first day at the office meeting Dr Gupta, I was overcome with relief to see how comforting and reassuring she was. I felt safe and knew that my vocal chords were in great hands. After visiting many ENT’s prior to Dr Gupta, this was the first time I had ever felt at ease, and knew that everything was going to be okay. Dr Gupta worked with me, and allowed me to finish up the final touches on my EP before stepping into surgery. She helped make the experience less stressful, and allowed me to continue on my musical journey, while simultaneously preparing for surgery. Her comforting energy, her reassuring words, and her infectious smile made a scary situation seem nothing but a breeze.
The day of surgery I sat in the waiting room nervous as I waited for the nurses to bring me back. After changing into my gown and getting comfy in the hospital bed, it was apparent I was nervous. But in came Dr Gupta with her high energy and positive attitude and I knew right away, I had NOTHING to worry about. This surgery is something that I had been dreading for three years, and I am thankful that I was able to overcome it with Dr Gupta by my side. My family and I both will be forever grateful for her. She has been a true light in my journey thus far and I hope to keep her apart of it for the times to come. Thank you Dr Gupta.

It’s hard to know where to begin praising Dr. Reena Gupta and happily I’m in no danger of overstating the case. The headline is that this was the best medical experience I’ve ever had, from the initial consultation and intake to the completely successful surgery, and right through to the completely productive post-op, follow-up, and therapy. Dr. Gupta is a very rare example of a doctor who is firing on all the cylinders all the time. The startling breadth of the anatomical knowledge, the incredible skill and talent of the surgery, and the thoughtfulness — the actual processing of the actual questions that I was actually asking. She has no rote answers, no rote phrases —for Dr. Gupta, every case is perfectly individual and every case requires a perfectly individual approach.
One of the most difficult things about being a performer is explaining yourself to a medical professional. I never had to explain to Dr. Gupta a thing — what an actor is, what his voice goes through, how I feel about it, why I’m scared, what I fear will be lost, what my voice means to me, that I have a relationship with my body that might be different from a civilian’s. Dr. Gupta was ahead of me on all of it. Perhaps her empathy is the greatest of her talents: my guess is the medicine was the one that followed its lead.
As I write this my very serious vocal issue, the issue that could have ended my career, is completely cured. I’m done; the whole thing is over. I never, in my wildest hopes, dared dream for this result. This medical experience exceeded my wildest expectations. It is not at all an exaggeration to say:
I still have my career because of the incredible medical care that Dr. Reena Gupta provided me.”

Dr. Gupta is a miracle worker. I am a professional singer and I was devastated when I had cysts on my vocal chords. Dr. Gupta performed surgery 5 months ago and honestly my voice is coming back so nicely. It was a really long journey for me. From having issues and trying to fix it with rest (I was silent for 3 months!) to going to different ENTs and contemplating surgery, and ultimately thinking my career was possibly over.
I did everything I could in order to prevent having surgery. After surgery I also did a lot of work with my vocal coach, Kate Conklin, in order to teach myself how to speak and sing without the danger of fatiguing my vocal chords. This is something I’m still working on and it has been tedious. I’m lucky to have the ability to devote almost all my time to this now, but I’m back to recording and doing concerts and my voice is sounding great.
I feel so grateful to Dr. Gupta. I don’t think I would be where I am without her. My surgery was complex and I would never have trusted another doctor to have performed it. Not only is Dr. Gupta so sweet, but she really understands the voice and how to fix it while making me feel at ease. I am so happy to have her on my team from now on. It is amazing that my voice is back, and I feel so comforted knowing that if anything comes up I can always go to her. Thank you Dr. Gupta!”
