About our speakers…

Dr. Darrell Klotz is an otolaryngologist who practices general/comprehensive adult and pediatric otolaryngology and has subspecialty fellowship training in laryngology (adult voice and swallowing disorders) in the Charlotte, NC area. He also has additional interests in the use of office ultrasound in head and neck disorders as well as minimally-invasive endoscopic treatment of salivary gland disorders (sialendoscopy).

Dr. Gerlach is a speech language pathologist specializing in voice and swallowing disorders for both pediatric and adult populations. She started the original voice center in Charlotte in 1990 at Presbyterian hospital and spear headed the treatment of spasmodic dysphonia using Botox injections with local ENT’s in 1991. The voice center developed into a comprehensive voice and swallowing center and moved the CEENTA in 2006 to further grow this specialized center. She performs videostroboscopy, acoustic analysis and voice evaluations for voice disordered patients as well as comprehensive intervention for voice improvement. She is LSVT certified for Parkinson’s Disease.

Dr. Gerlach is also a Level III certified Buteyko breathing practitioner for disorganized and disordered breathing and provides myofascial release. She performs swallowing evaluations and Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluations of Swallowing (FEES) procedures for swallowing disordered patients. Swallowing intervention includes neuromuscular stimulation, myofascial release, and the McNiell Dysphagia Therapy Program as well as use of biofeedback for both voice and swallowing. Dr. Gerlach also works with resonance disorder in both adults and pediatrics addressing velopharyngeal incompetence and hypernasality. She also works with head and neck cancer and laryngectomy populations.
