About Me

As a general gastroenterologist, I treat conditions of the gastrointestinal tract, such as heartburn/acid reflux, constipation, diarrhea, colon polyps, difficulty swallowing, liver disease, pancreatitis, and other conditions. I strongly believe in preventative care and polyp screening for my patients and perform routine upper and lower endoscopy. I have a special interest in inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn’s disease. It is important to me to listen to and educate my patients on their conditions and how to work together to best improve their quality of life. When not working, my time is spent with my wife and two dogs. My interests include gardening, hiking, and supporting the UNC Tar Heels.
