Biography

Dr. Gita Fleischman is an Otolaryngologist, Head and Neck Surgeon, with a clinical interest in general ENT, pediatric otolaryngology, sinus disease, facial aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, thyroid disease, hearing disorders, ear disease and surgery, and head and neck oncology.

She grew up locally in Cary, North Carolina and obtained her undergraduate and medical school degrees at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. In addition to having a masters of science and completing her residency, she pursued additional clinical training in aesthetic and reconstructive facial plastic surgery, with a special concentration in functional and cosmetic nasal surgery, facial rejuvenation, oculoplastic surgery, Mohs reconstruction, and maxillofacial surgery.

While in medical school, Dr. Fleischman was a Losken Craniofacial fellow, and conducted research aimed at creating tissue-engineered skin, bone, and complex tissues for reconstruction of craniofacial defects such as cleft lips and palates. She received numerous awards for her research, including those from the American College of Surgeons, the American Society of Pediatric Otolaryngology, North Carolina Plastic Surgery Society, and UNC School of Medicine.

As a resident at UNC, she received the NIH T-32 National Research Service Award and the Alpha Omega Alpha Service Project Grant. During this time, Dr. Fleischman conducted research in the field of computational fluid dynamics, studying how interventions such as airway reconstruction in children, rhinoplasty, and sinus surgery affect physiologic airflow.

Dr. Fleischman has extensively published and presented her research at several national and international conferences.

On a personal note, Dr. Fleischman is married to Dr. David Fleischman, an Ophthalmologist and eye surgeon specializing in Glaucoma. They have two daughters and enjoy traveling whenever possible.

WakeMed Patient - February 2020

Listen to my concerns, give time to heal, give me options what can be done if not healed. Give me medication to help prevent infection. Check my hearing in detail with a specialist in the office before and after. Staff is very nice, caring, and understanding. Very satisfied with my care.


WakeMed Patient - February 2020

It didn''t have anything to do with a Heath issue, but one of the attendants ( in red uniform) was most helpful in getting me driving directions to get back on road home....she really went out of her way, and I appreciated that!

Not outstanding - very good


WakeMed Patient - January 2020

I have OCD and a debilitating fear of doctors. The staff was exceedingly kind, careful to explain what was happening and to calm my fears, and they even let me take a few Frozen stickers on the way out. :) Not every medical staff I have encountered in my life has been so kind. I even had one doctor tell me I was stupid for being afraid. I had a really positive experience both times I have visited the ENT office and it makes a tremendous difference because when the doctor and staff are kind, I am less afraid to return for future help. Other experiences, with different doctors and offices, have left me afraid to return even though I still needed help. I''d rather let the problem grow worse than visit most doctors. The fact that I left feeling empowered instead of terrified and ashamed is a big deal. Please let them know how grateful I am.
