WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I have a clinical practice that focuses on the evaluation and management of patients with esophageal and swallowing disorders, including gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), Barrett’s esophagus and achalasia. Also, I have a strong academic and professional interest in health outcomes and quality of care, particularly as they relate to common gastrointestinal issues like colon cancer screening and acid peptic diseases. I am excited to be a part of Duke Health, where I can utilize revolutionary technologies like high resolution esophageal manometry and radiofrequency ablation to improve the care of my patients.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My primary research interests relate to improving healthcare outcomes with an emphasis on quality of care. My major focus is on problems of the upper digestive tract, including acid peptic disorders like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and gastrointestinal bleeding. In particular, I am interested in combining our emerging understanding of disease with improved delivery of care. My ultimate goal is to advance the management of both ambulatory and hospitalized patients by increasing adherence to best practices and evidence-based medicine.
