WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a gastroenterologist, I specialize in digestive disorders that affect the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, liver, and pancreas. In addition to seeing patients, I perform upper endoscopy (EGD) and colonoscopy. I was drawn to Gastroenterology as a specialty because digestive disorders come in many different forms and affect patients of all backgrounds and ages. My practice focuses on patient-centered care and shared decision making, and I enjoy working with patients to develop a treatment plan tailored to their specific problems. I believe patients should feel empowered to participate in their medical care. Outside of the office, I enjoy exploring the outdoors with my wife and children and music, especially playing the guitar.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research interests include obesity and endoscopic or minimally invasive weight loss procedures. Many of these procedures are relatively new, and I am interested in learning how they compare to weight loss surgery (otherwise known as bariatric surgery) and weight loss medications in terms of effectiveness and safety.
