Message from Dr. Jamie Koufman (Director, Voice Institute of New York)

"Chronic (>8 weeks) cough is one of the most common symptoms for which a person seeks medical attention. Unfortunately, many patients fail to receive an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment. That’s because people with chronic cough often have a non-pulmonary cough, that is, a problem in the lungs is not the cause of the cough. Regrettably, few physicians know much about silent reflux and neurogenic cough, the most common causes of non-pulmonary chronic cough. Those diagnoses are the focus of my work."
