WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I strive to offer patients at Duke Health the latest advancements and treatment options in the treatment of gastrointestinal and liver disease. It is a privilege to partner with patients and their families in developing care plans that meet the needs and goals of each person. It is my passion to stand next to each of my patients and help them make important decisions about their own health. I remain involved in clinical research and am interested in the role of nutritional wellness in patients with liver disease and those awaiting transplant. When not working, my wife and I are busy with our two daughters. My love for them reminds me of the importance of care for others.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I have special training in nutritional wellness through the Nestle Clinical Nutrition Fellowship for physicians. My research interests are focused on physical and nutritional wellness in patients with liver disease, and those awaiting abdominal transplantation. My hope is to empower patients with information that they can apply to their everyday lives to remain healthy. This interest offers additional insight into the care I am able to offer patients I see in clinic or on the hospital ward.
