Currently Accepting New Patients

Gastroenterology is exciting and interesting to me because there are a variety of conditions that I can make a difference in a patient's life. I like to give every patient a chance to tell me their story about why they are there to see me and I like to develop a long-term relationship with them. Tests and procedures are necessary to help make a diagnosis and fix the underlying problem, but I try to keep these to a minimum. Medical care is expensive and I always keep that in mind when prescribing medications or ordering tests.
