David G. Reuter, MD

Urgent Care

On staff since January 1999

"My training as a physician scientist allows me to provide care for the two types of patients who walk through our doors: those for whom we have a good solution, and those for whom creativity and innovation are required. My greatest satisfaction is derived from the privelege of caring for patients with a spectrum of needs (from critically ill to subtle concerns). My clinical work motivates my innovative spirit. After developing a novel implantable device for patients with heart failure, my next challenge is to tackle the enormous problem of hypertension, and find a cure within the next 5 years."

David G Reuter, MD, PhD trained in pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh after completing his doctoral work in the bioengineering center at Purdue University. His clinical responsibilities focus on patients presenting to the emergency department or urgent care. In parallel with his clinical work, Dr Reuter invented and developed the technique of percutaneous mitral annuloplasty to care for patients with heart failure and mitral regurgitation. He has lectured and proctored cases worldwide on this novel therapy. More recently, he has joined the heart center to spearhead their cardiac innovations center.

    We have received excellent care several times at Urgent care from Dr Reuter. He is knowledgeable, caring and loves children and famiies, even when it does not look that pretty! We always hope to get him if we ever have to go to Urgent care now. Thank you for your care, from our family.
