Dr. Jamie Koufman has lectured widely nationally and internationally and is one of the world’s leading authorities on reflux. For almost three decades, her pioneering research has focused upon acid reflux as it affects the voice and airway (breathing passages). She coined the terms “silent reflux” and “laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR),” the medical term for reflux that involves the larynx (voice box) and throat.
Dr. Koufman is also the Founder and Director of the Voice Institute of New York, one of the premier comprehensive voice treatment centers in the United Sates. Dr. Koufman is Professor of Clinical Otolaryngology at the New York Medical College, and she has been listed among the Top Doctors in America every year since 1994.
