Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?
I’ve always wanted to work with children within gastroenterology. I now am a board certified gastroenterologist who treats children’s gastrointestinal (esophagus, stomach and intestine) disorders. My staff and I work extremely hard to streamline the referral process, expedite appointment scheduling and promptly respond to patient calls. I am proud to say that my practice offers a pure pediatric environment, as a pediatric trained professional handles every aspect of the child’s care, from anesthesia to X-rays.
