About Me

I derive great pleasure from practicing medicine. Doctors are afforded a great privilege and responsibility by their patients to help shape the human condition and this motivates my everyday practice. My training is specialized in gastroenterology with a particular interest in liver disease and my approach is rooted in the modern day practice of evidence based medicine along with the traditional belief that doctoring begins with the relationships you create with your patient.
