WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I see a wide array of gastrointestinal disorders in clinic and perform screening colonoscopies to help prevent colon cancer. I have a special academic interest in disorders of the esophagus, such as reflux disease, eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), and swallowing disorders. New technologies have helped the medical community to better understand the esophagus and help patients with these conditions.

MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I study newer technologies we have to better understand the esophagus, such as combined pH-impedance testing to evaluate gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and high-resolution manometry (HRM) to assess esophageal motor (muscle) disorders. These exciting technologies, among others, have the potential to help us better manage our patients with esophageal disorders.
