Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?
During my internal medicine training, I decided that I wanted to do a specialty and Gastroenterology was different. Patients were of any age, including treating kids. You could easily diagnose and cure many patients. Endoscopy procedures were in their infancy when I trained, and were exciting
