Chronic cough is a treatable condition. 7 out of 10 of our patients report cure or life-changing cough resolution, most in 1 or 2 office visits. While cough is a common medical problem, treatment is often geared at the symptom, rather than the underlying cause, leaving patients feeling frustrated and still coughing.
Chronic cough can disrupt sleep, produce urinary incontinence and even depression. Chronic coughers may avoid social settings like church or the symphony. A sales presentation or speech can be ruined by chronic cough or throat clearing.
