About Me

While I am a specialist and enjoy the technical aspects of a gastroenterology practice, I believe that health is best improved by a partnership between patient and physician. I most enjoy caring for patients who are motivated to take responsibility for their health, in terms of both prevention and by making lifestyle changes that may lead to its improvement.
