Mobile FEES

Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallow

We now have flexible endoscopy, more commonly referred to as FEES (Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallow) and Videostroboscopy. This allows us to bring invaluable diagnostic measures right to your facility. It requires no anesthesia. A thin and flexible tube with a tiny camera on the end is gently passed through the patient’s nose and into their throat. This camera allows our speech therapists to see what happens when the person swallows different foods and liquids. The Videostroboscopy provides a slow-motion view allows our speech therapists to see any issues or abnormalities in the vocal cords that might affect a person’s voice or cause other problems. These are both invaluable tools for diagnosing and treating voice-related conditions.

SLP Support for Medical Facilities: Your Local Speech-Language Therapy Service

Cobalt Therapy is Lake County’s exclusive mobile speech therapy service for medical facilities. We work with an array of ENT centers, assisted & independent living as well as skilled nursing facilities to deliver best-in-class SLP services to your clients. Let us be the in-house speech therapy provider for you.

Our SLPs will fill the void where you have limitations on staffing. If you do not already have an in-house rehab company, we can provide a primary therapist for your location. As a dedicated speech-therapy-only company, we always have support for you!

Speech therapy services for facilities can be very hard to retain for most practices due to a variety of reasons. But we do the retention for you and collaborate with your team to support your business’s speech therapy needs.

We support healthcare facilities as an independent contractor. Cobalt Therapy will be responsible for the documentation, billing and services aspect. We prefer to keep everything in-house to decrease the burden of multiple systems and supervisors on our therapists.

There are few select situations, like home health where in-house documentation is required, where our availability may be limited. But like any good speech therapist, we are problem solvers first. We are more than happy to discuss ways to help one another — and our clients! We are constantly innovating speech therapy services within our healthcare system. We want all parties to benefit, while making sure our patients’ needs come first.

Have we mentioned that we’re Lake County’s exclusive mobile speech therapy service for adults? This applies to your healthcare facility too. Let’s make teamwork, harmony and patient success happen!
