Your appointment

Appointments require a physician referral and can be made over the phone by you or your referring physician’s office.

Once you are scheduled for your evaluation, you’ll find us on the first floor of UCHealth Longs Peak Hospital in the radiology department.

Referral visits: what to expect

Modified barium swallow study

When your physician refers you to us for a modified barium swallow study, you will be scheduled to meet with a speech language pathologist (SLP), radiologist and radiology technician. The SLP will administer the study, which will take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes.

The SLP will review the general results and recommendations with you and send a full report to your doctor.

Speech therapy evaluation

When your physician refers you to us for a speech therapy evaluation, you will receive a one-on-one evaluation from the speech language pathologist (SLP) which takes anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes. The SLP administers a variety of tests to assess for swallowing, voice, language and/or cognitive dysfunction.

After the evaluation, the SLP will work with you and your family to establish a plan of care and goals for your treatment, including establishing an appropriate treatment frequency and return visits for treatment.
