About Me

I enjoy treating a diverse array of gastroenterology conditions, but have special interests in inflammatory bowel disease, small bowel pathology, celiac disease and colon cancer prevention. I believe the practice of medicine should be a patient-physician partnership. I strive to address each patient’s unique signs, symptoms and concerns and to empower them to understand their diseases, allowing us to make decisions together as a team. My favorite aspect of medicine is being able to couple these rewarding interactions with solving diagnostic puzzles and managing diseases with well-coordinated, evidence-based care.
