Real Testimonials Real Patients – Real Stories!
Thank you for your great support and efforts in the help of laryngectomee rehabilitation.
Hi Rebecca, I just realized I still have your e-mailed address. How are you? The shows are unbelief able. I haven’t been hoarse one time. Thanks for believing I could do it. I’ve done 32 shows already. I have 4 more days left in Japan then we go to Seoul, Korea for 10 days.
However, my reason for writing is to thank you for all you did for Lewis and the impression you made on him was better than medical treatment. He is really doing remarkably well. He has remembered all your instructions and does abide by them most of the time. He eats every thing, more slowing and thanks to you became relax about the entire problem which has become almost no problem. Thank you from both of us.
As a Radiologist I have worked at different times in association with Rebecca’s diagnosis and treatment involving patients with Dysphagia. I personally learned a great deal and have the greatest respect for her abilities. Her knowledge has inspired me to take a more active part in our speech pathology workups, and to gain further education using her workshops.
Her knowledge base is exceptional and matched only by her compassion and care in helping patients. She has been instrumental in organizing a nationally attended annual meeting with multidisciplinary appeal to both physicians and speech therapist involved in communicative and swallowing disorders.
I have worked with Ms. Gould for over a decade, and found her to be the best speech pathologist that I have ever encountered. Her knowledge and expertise in swallowing disorders far surpasses most of my physician counters, as one would expect from the organizer of an excellent swallowing disorder course which she has held annually for the last five years.
Thank you so much for allowing me to observe you. I think you are truly a gift to your profession, (maybe mine too some day!). You opened a new door for me by allowing me to see first hand what a Speech Pathologist really does. Freely, you spent your time teaching, advising and listening to me. You belong to the group of givers. I hope that some day I will have an opportunity do repay you personally and or professionally.
Ms. Gould’s re-evaluation indicated that Lillian did have the potential to progress, and was therefore eligible for Medicare. Her program, however, differed from the previous therapists’ in that her approach was to enable Lillian to communicate her needs by other means than just rebuilding a word bank. This included writing, drawing rude sketches-Lillian was a fine artist prior to the stroke and can still sketch-and by sign language. “Do whatever works”, she told us.
Rebecca Gould, who had the patience of a saint, succeeded against all odds in returning my ability to swallow, thereby assuring me of a much more normal life…
Thank you for your kindness and respect you have shown my mom, as well as your exceptional professional expertise. You have all contributed in such a positive way to her recovery and well being.
Rebecca Gould thanks for your skill and devotion that solved my problem.
