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."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Reuther "Dr. Reuther possesses expertise in voice disorders, professional voice care, swallowing disorders, extraesophageal and gastroesophageal reflux, airway surgery and reconstruction, spasmodic dysphonia, and chronic cough.

Dr. Reuther is committed to helping people with these difficulties, thereby improving overall well-being. She cares for patients in all aspects of otolaryngology and head and neck surgery, including nasal and sinus disease, head and neck cancer, salivary gland disorders, thyroid and parathyroid disease, allergy, snoring, and sleep apnea. In addition to providing excellent care, Dr. Reuther emphasizes the value of a strong doctor-patient relationship and feels that patient education and understanding is of utmost importance."
