Dr. Nita Scherer

Dr. Scherer practices general otolaryngology, head and neck surgery, with an interest in salivary gland and thyroid surgical disease, non-syndromic pediatric disease and ear disease. She graduated from the University of Western Ontario with both a BSc in Science with Distinction (1994), and Doctor of Medicine (MD) (1998). She was then accepted to the otolaryngology, head and neck surgery residency training program at the University of Ottawa (1998-2003). She is both a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons (2003) and a Diplomat of American Board of Otolaryngology (2004). She continues to pursue educational activities to further enhance her knowledge and provide better care to her patients.

Dr. Scherer has been appointed Assistant Professor at the University of Ottawa, and is actively involved with the undergraduate medical education program at the university. She has been the Director of the Mandatory Selectives clerkship rotation at the University since 2010, and supervises many of our Francophone medical students and the otolaryngology residents through their clinical training programs.

She holds privileges at Hôpital Montfort, the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, The Ottawa Hospital and St. Vincent’s Hospital. Furthermore, she enjoys being part of the otolaryngology team that travels to Nunavut to provide services at the Qikiqtani General Hospital in Iqaluit.

Patients are only accepted on referral by their family doctor (by fax), and there is often a long waiting list to be seen.
