Biography

"I am interested in all kinds of GI diseases, and I believe in customizing therapy to the individual person. No two people are alike, and what works for one person may not be the right treatment for another. I like to work with patients until we find the best solution for their particular problem. I believe that good communication is the key to a successful partnership and like to make sure patients have a good understanding of the entire process."
