After years of trouble with my voice, from constant hoarseness to completely losing a couple times a year, I realized the problem was more than just being sick.I was referred to Dr. Gupta by a top vocal coach and from the minute I walked into Dr. Gupta, I knew I was in the right place. The office staff could not be more helpful and friendly.I never had to wait for my appointment and they answered all of my questions, quickly and efficiently. The care and healing I received from Dr. Gupta was simply, the best. I didn’t hesitate for a second to entrust my surgery and vocal health to her and her team. She is through, kind and knowledgeable. She addressed all my questions and fears with humor and professionalism. The surgery itself could not have gone better. For a completely unpleasant experience, they made it as pleasant as possible. And when I had my breakdown on day 14 of 21 days of vocal rest, she “talked” me out of the tree, telling me I could do it. And I am so glad I did. I am back to sounding like my best self without the pain I had been living with for years. I cannot thank Dr. Gupta and her team for their kindness and care.

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.

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!

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!

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!”

I have been non stop recording music, playing live shows with my band Alexander Jean, performing 8 shows a week on Broadway as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys & Charlie Price in Kinky Boots, so vocal health, maintenance & care is incredibly important to me. Since working with Dr. Gupta I have never felt more taken care of & also more aware of how to Maintain a healthy voice, she has kept me going & given me peace of mind when I’ve needed it most on tired days after many shows! I’m so grateful to have her in my life and I encourage any vocalist to work with her to ensure a strong, long lasting & healthy voice.

When I first started seeing Dr. Gupta, I was the new kid in a big new city who was ready to take on the music industry, however I was dealing with minor effects of acid reflux and sinus issues. And despite obsessive practice of what I thought was proper vocal care and management, I was always fearful of somehow damaging my voice due to my lack of knowledge of vocal anatomy. Through my time with Dr. Gupta and her video stroboscopy service, she not only helped me eliminate the effects of the acid reflux and sinus issues, she calmed my nerves and fears answering my many questions regarding potential vocal damage and educated me on how the voice works, providing additional ways to achieve proper and pristine vocal health. Four years later, I remain a loyal client of Dr. Gupta’s and I’m forever grateful for how she has helped educate me on my own voice and empowered me to sing without fear, giving me all the tools needed to succeed. Thank you so much Dr. Gupta!!!
