Patient reviews for Dr Rehab Awad



Speech Therapy
"I was referred to Rehab following an appointment with a Private Hospital to investigate my ongoing laryngitis. For a number of years I had suffered with the loss of voice for not only weeks but sometimes months at a time.

I felt at ease during my appointments (via Facetime), Rehab was professional, friendly and so knowledgable as to what was going on with my voice. She listened to me when describing what was happening and I felt comfortable throughout our appointments.

I started treatment feeling slightly lost with my condition, frustrated due to not being able to talk and lacking confidence to hold day to day conversations. By the end of my sessions I had my voice back!! I continue to do the exercises she provided me with and to date I haven't lost it again.

I would recommend Rehab to anyone struggling with vocal related issues she is amazing!

Superb voice therapist
"Dr Rehab Awad is a superb voice therapist. I was referred to her by my ENT specialist because I had damaged my vocal chords after a long siege (15 months) of coughing due to a bronchial infection.

I had only three sessions with Dr Awad and through her coaching made tremendous progress in regaining my voice (there were times in the day when I could not make a sound) and almost recovering my normal voice level instead of sounding hoarse and breathless.

She was clear in her instructions and extremely patient in helping me perform the voice exercises correctly. She inspires confidence in one which made me practice her exercises diligently every day between sessions. I cannot recommend her highly enough! She deserves more than five stars.

Voice therapy
"I had three highly effective sessions spread over two months. As a result, there has been a marked improvment in the quality and clarity of my voice. The sessions were most enjoyable, with plenty of work plus some light hearted moments to share a laugh."

Speech Therapy for Professional Singer
"I have struggled for years with hoarseness and speaking voice fatigue. As a result, this affected my social life (avoiding loud places like pubs and restaurants), and also my professional life (having to cancel recitals etc.).

I was recommended Dr Rehab Awab by my voice physiotherapist.

Rehab was extremely friendly and supportive. She took the time to listen to how my voice had affected my personal and professional life, and made sure that I was equipped with the right tools going forward (vocal exercises/lifestyle changes).

After 6 sessions with Rehab, I feel confident that I am on track to having a healthier voice.

I would absolutely recommend Dr Rehab Awad to any amateur or professional voice users.

Voice Therapy
"Dr Awad has helped my 15 year son gain confidence about his voice, which was very high pitched when we were first referred to her clinic. My son has Asperger's syndrome and he can be tricky to deal with; however Dr Rehab showed incredible skill and expertise together with a very approachable and nurturing manner, which has been key to make a success of the voice therapy.
His voice is now much deeper and we have been given maintenance exercises to make sure it settles down.
I am very grateful we were able to access Dr Awad's therapy which has clearly had a huge positive impact.
She is an expert in this field and I wholeheartedly recommend her clinic.
Thank you.

Helped me speak and sing again
"It sounds minor, but when singing brings such joy and wholeness, having my voice back impacts everything - mental health, confidence, wellbeing, social life...

Dr Awad has been amazing. She can tell what I do wrong in an instant, and coaches good habits to not overuse or misuse the voice.

It's a long process, and like any issue needs to be worked on a lot - but the result is worth every bit of it.

Speech Therapy
"I was directed to Dr Awad by my husband who works in healthcare as I had a long standing ongoing issue with my voice. Dr Awad responded to emails very swiftly and we were able to find a mutually convenient date for my first appointment with ease. She was very friendly and immediately made me feel relaxed. She is clearly very knowledgeable as she identified the primary issue causing my voice difficulties and referred me to see a specialist ENT surgeon. As she suspected I did need surgery. I have done speech therapy with Dr Awad post op. Dr Awad is extremely professional, knowledgeable and I am very happy with the treatment carried out."

Post Covid severe throat / speech impairment
"I have been through a very difficult period post Covid which led to severe breathing, throat issues including very hoarse weak speech, shortness of breath & restricted breathing resulting in lack of air to generate sound/normal voice strength.
Over 3-4 months with two weekly sessions combined with daily practice sessions through Rehab's clear and thorough approach, guidance, support and encouragement I have made an almost full recovery. It is expected that it will take a further 2-3 months before I am fully back to normal however through Rehab's support and encouragement I have made amazing progress. She has done wonders for which I am very grateful. Many thanks again Rehab, you have been amazing, both in your expertise & support/coaching.

Voice therapy following Laryngoplasty for Excised Bilateral Gr3 Vocal Fold Sulci
"Rehab is one of the most excellent teachers I have ever had the privilege of working with. She strikes an exceptionally fine balance between acknowledging the sensitivity of the situation and practical, firm advice for steps towards recovery. I have Rehab to thank entirely for diagnosing my voice disorder, which, despite multiple laryngoscopies, had gone un-checked for my entire professional singing career (15 years or more). I can't emphasise enough how skilled and knowledgable a practitioner Rehab is but also how flexible she is in tailoring the exercises to pinpoint exactly what is needed. Her ears make it seem like she's constantly got a camera down your throat! There's nothing she doesn't hear. I can't recommend Rehab highly enough for all things voice related and I can't thank her enough for helping me to find a way back to my voice."
