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
Do you have a specialty of interest within GI?
I have always had a major interest in Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I was an investigator
in the Accent 1 studies of Remicade and have a Remicade Infusion center in my office.

What do you and your family enjoy doing in your spare time?
