Dr. Reuther's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Reuther "As a native Californian, Dr. Marsha Reuther is especially dedicated to its diverse population. She began her education at UC Berkeley, earning a degree in Molecular and Cell Biology with an emphasis in Neurobiology. She received her medical degree from Saint Louis University School of Medicine and was one of a handful elected into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society during her third year. She graduated with both the Distinction in Research award and the Distinction in Community Service award. Dr. Reuther returned to California to train in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery at UC San Diego. During her training, she completed an additional two years of NIH-funded research, receiving the American Academy of Otolaryngology's research award both years. During her surgical training, Dr. Reuther developed a deep interest in helping people with voice and swallowing problems, prompting her to pursue advanced training in Laryngology under the instruction of world-renowned expert Dr. Gregory Postma at the Medical College of Georgia. Dr. Reuther is a huge animal lover and, when not going to dog beach with her four-legged buddy, can be found playing tennis, skiing, scuba diving, or fishing."

Don't love the practice itself, but loved Dr. Reuther. Great listener, spent a good amount of time with me, and the whole process felt collaborative. The practice itself has a business feel (chronic double-booking, full waiting room, pushing you through the process) but I really liked Dr. Reuther and felt like she had my best interests in mind. I ultimately ended up needing a specialist so I'm not under her care anymore, but I would happily recommend her.

I could write pages of how wonderful this doctor has been to our family. Her ability to diagnose problems has always been accurate. Even our 88 year young parent trusted her surgical skills to enable him to once again be able to swallow properly and enjoy the remainder of his years eating and drinking as he pleases. Dr. Reuther has shown us exemplary skill in all inspects of the medical profession from the consultation, diagnosis, communication to bedside manner.

Thank you so so much!!! You did a perfect job, I couldn't ask for better. The staff was great and the best I've ever encountered. Again thank you all!!!!!!!!

GREAT listener. After several surgeries for polyp removal etc. Starting with a new doctor can be frustrating because it's almost like you have to start from scratch and try things that don't work all over again. With Dr. Reuther, she listened and understood what I have tried and what works etc. Surgery was great with a very quick recovery. Shes very friendly, offers alternative ideas and suggestions. Overall for someone with a lot of sinus issues, I HIGHLY Recommend!

Excellent and very caring

As and ENT physician myself, I feel like I have a very good sense of my options in San Diego for specialized ENT and laryngology care. I wouldn't trust anyone else to scope me besides Dr. Reuther. She is kind, gentle, and a very good listener. Going to a specialist makes a difference. Her level of knowledge and nuance surpass my expectations every time I'm in to see her. I've referred several physician and non-physician friends...she really is the doctor's doctor!
