Diagnosis and Treatment

Effective Cough Treatment Starts With Precision Diagnosis

Diagnosing Refractory Chronic Cough or Unexplained Chronic Cough

Not all coughs are created equal.  Very often the causes and triggers producing your cough are multifactorial meaning there are more than one.  Therefore, it is critically important that a comprehensive diagnostic approach is performed and the cough treatment roadmap is specifically targeted to your unique cough.

The diagnostic cough evaluation includes a comprehensive history including review of past diagnostic studies and treatments, a thorough physical exam and consideration of further diagnostic testing (available on initial visit) including allergy skin testing, full lung functions, lung inflammation testing, and scoping of upper airway structures including larynx and vocal cords.  Center for Cough’s services are evidence-based and covered by insurance. 

Cough Treatment

Dr. Mandel Sher and Center for Cough’s results are remarkable!  Over 85% of patients demonstrate cough reduction and report an overall improvement in the quality of their lives.  Many of these patients have seen other doctors for their cough and tried and failed other chronic cough treatments before finally seeing Dr. Sher.  Each cough patient leaves the initial cough evaluation visit with an understanding of their specific treatment plan.  A comprehensive cough treatment plan is recommended at the end of the initial cough evaluation.  Depending upon the precise cause(s) and trigger(s) of cough, cough treatment can include:  over-the-counter and prescription medications, laryngeal care, and easy and effective home voice exercises.  Dr. Mandel Sher recommends cough treatment that balances evidence-based medicine with cutting-edge updates.

This rapidly breaks the cough cycle and brings about sustainable cough relief without wasting time and money and unhelpful medications associated with a trial and error approach.    Dr. Mandel Sher takes the guesswork out of cough treatment!


Refractory chronic cough or unexplained chronic cough can be managed or resolved.  People suffering with this debilitating condition do not need to learn to live with it.  Over 85% of Center for Cough’s patients demonstrate a measurable improvement in the frequency and intensity of coughing bouts and transform uncontrollable coughing bouts to something manageable.
