About Us

Dr. David P. Schleimer is Board Certified in Otolaryngology and Facial Plastic Surgery and has been in private practice since 2016. Dr. Schleimer’s practice takes a special interest in working with his patients to achieve a common goal in treatment of ear, nose and throat complaints. After receiving his Bachelor of Science in Microbiology from The Ohio State University, Dr. Schleimer began his quest to treat human disease by performing basic science research investigating pediatric blood cancers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Inspired by graduate courses in human development and otolaryngologic disorders, Dr. Schleimer elected to pursue his medical degree from the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine. Further training in Otolaryngology and Facial Plastic Surgery brought Dr. Schleimer to the greater Detroit area when he matched to the St. John-Providence residency program credentialed through Michigan State University. Seeing patients of all ages with ear, nose and throat illnesses motivates Dr. Schleimer to stay up to date on current medical and surgical options to return his patients to optimal health.
