“Dr. Reuther has been by far one of the best doctor finds I have found. Words cannot explain her caring demeanor, ability to listen, evaluate and diagnose conditions others were either unable to do so or didn’t want to. In my case, it started with an 88-year-old parent with a GI tube that was inserted due to a complication of pneumonia. After months of Barium Swallow tests and Speech therapy prescribed by another GI doctor, all he was able to come up with after a couple moments of his time was “let’s leave well enough alone” and did not want to take un-due risk because of his age. Granted, when you get to your advanced years there are risk, but with those risk (provided the patient is willing to take them) there are rewards. After searching for a second opinion I found Dr. Reuther. After reading her bio that stated “Dr. Reuther developed a passion for helping people with voice and swallowing problems”, I knew I had to see her. Passionate she was. She sat down with my father, listened carefully and then assured us that this is what she does and felt there was a good chance he could eat once again and be able to go to his assisted living community (that does not allow GI tubes under article 22 of the government license). After a few tests, she took the liberty to further discuss our case with her mentor to ensure that the procedure would be possible with minimal risk. Well, I happy to report, he is currently living comfortably at his assisted living community, having a glass of wine at dinner and enjoying the rest of his life fulfilled by eating whatever he desires (no feeding tube). Life is good… Even if it requires a second procedure, my father feels more than comfortable and trusting when it comes to Dr. Reuther’s skill set and bedside manner
Well… Months later, I myself was in need of a “swallow” specialist. After years of being misdiagnosed by three primary care physicians with an “allergy”, I decided to go to an allergist finally to see what I was allergic to. As fate would have it, everything came back negative. So, it was a no brainer to go see Dr. Reuther for myself to see if she had any input. She ordered one test and within a week, she had a diagnosis that was spot on. After reading up on this condition, if left untreated, then there is a good possibility of the development of cancer. So, in some way I owe this doctor much more than a great review. As previously noted, words cannot explain what this doctor has meant to our family. Although these are my personal stories, I have and will recommend her to anyone in need of Otolaryngology (ENT).”
“Hands down my favorite doctor I’ve ever had.
After 12 days of excruciating pain, 4 doctors visits (including ER and urgent care), I visited Dr Reuther hoping she’d reassure me my eardrum wouldn’t pop from pressure I had been having when I got on a plane. Every other doctor said I had mono or some viral infection, gave me some antibiotics and painkillers that didn’t work, advised me to “drink more water”, and sent me on my way. As soon as I opened my mouth Dr Reuther’s jaw dropped and she sent me to the ER so I could get the appropriate tests I had needed all along, asap. Next thing you know she was at my bedside in the hospital draining an (obvious) abscess in my throat. My relief was immediate and I was back to work, eating, and living my life the next day! Especially after dealing with so many dismissive and not so nice doctors, I can not say enough good things about Dr Reuther and her team at Scripps ER and in the clinic. She put me out of my misery immediately, has incredible bedside manner, walked me through the whole process calmly, got me in and out of the hospital quickly, and has been checking up on me and is readily available if I have any more issues. I could not have picked a more kind, capable, caring, and wonderful doctor if I tried. I am so incredibly grateful, thank you!!!!!”

“As an Ear Nose and Throat Surgeon 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!”
