More Info

I chose Gastroenterology as my specialty because of the diversity of issues we are trained to take care of, and the great effect GI issues can have on a patient’s quality of life. I am privileged to help so many patients with so many different issues get back to enjoying their lives. I believe that the physician-patient relationship is the most important aspect of providing great care. It is important that my patients understand their bodies and the evidence-based rationale behind my recommendations as their physician, so they can become active participants in their treatment plan.

Personal Summary
