Alternative Text

Dr. Supriya Mathur is a board-certified otolaryngologist who has been practicing medicine for the past 22 years. She was drawn to medicine to help and make people feel better.

She strongly believes in treating patients like you would treat a loved one and works hard to create an environment of trust. Respect, communication, and caring are the cornerstones of her philosophy to patient care.

Dr. Mathur offers her medical services to the remote, marginalized, and underprivileged communities, and routinely uses innovative technologies like telemedicine to improve access to medicine.

From 2017 onwards, Dr. Mathur has been providing surgical ENT care to the community of Sitka, Alaska and has helped create a surgical service line at this site.

Dr. Mathur worked at the Alaska Native Medical Center for 10 years and Southern California Permanente Group in LA for an additional four years. Working at ANMC gave her an opportunity to cover the ENT needs of the indigenous population of the state of Alaska, meeting the unique challenges of taking care of patients living in remote areas.

There she had a rich experience learning to do a lot of complex ear cases combined with a wide plethora of other interesting ENT problems including facial fractures, head neck cancers, salivary gland diseases, deep neck infections, and many other routine ENT cases.

From 2011 to 2015, Dr. Mathur practiced at Kaiser in Harbor city. There, her focus was more on adult patients doing more complex sinus cases and thyroid surgeries. Dr. Mathur enjoys taking care of all ages and aspects of otolaryngology.

Outside of work, Dr. Mathur likes to volunteer at a clinic and within her community. She maintains a work-life balance by her yoga practice. She is very fond of traveling and exploring the outdoors with her husband and 2 boys. Skiing and hiking remain her most favorite outdoor pastimes.
