Patricia Swift Fulton, M.S., CCC-SLP

“My clinical and professional approach is rooted in my own personal life experiences. I treat the patient and their families as I would like to be treated … with kindness and respect. I tailor a treatment plan based on the patient’s stated needs and preferences, and on what is currently understood as best practice. I provide relevant education and resources. I hope that each of my patients becomes an “expert” in their own voice and swallow needs.”

Patricia Swift Fulton joined ENT Specialists in 2013. Before her career in medical speech-language pathology, Pat spent 18 years in international and domestic banking and business. She graduated with a Master of Science in Communicative Disorders (Speech-Language Pathology) from the University of Rhode Island in 2001. Previous to joining the ENT Specialists team, she worked at St. Joseph Hospital / Southern New England Rehabilitation and VoiceWize.
