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.

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!”

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.

Going to Drs Gupta and Zandifar is a reminder of what going to the doctor is like on that favorite tv show or book you consume—personalized attention by people who care. They understand that my voice is how I’m paying to be in their office—my concerns and my questions (no matter how elementary I may feel they are) are answered without judgement. I have never felt like a number when I go there…never rushed, and most important, never given extra treatments just so I end up paying more. Their goal is NOT to see me other than for annual checkups. And that’s telling in an industry where it’s easy to always find something wrong so a patient falls into a never-ending turnstile of illness and medication. They were wonderful when they were part of another practice—but together where they are navigating the ship, I’m so excited to see how, as the Center For Vocal Health, they will be able to steer Voice Artists towards a new era of vocal health and strength.

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.

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!!!

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.
