Diagnosis of dysphagia begins with a thorough review of your medical history and a physical exam. Specialists in digestive diseases; ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgery; speech-language pathology; and occupational therapy may be involved in your evaluation.

Test results are typically available on the same day or within 24 hours. Efficient testing helps the team quickly arrive at a diagnosis, so your treatment can begin as soon as possible.
