“In the 25-plus years that I’ve been a gastrointestinal specialist, I’ve learned a great deal of things about digestive disorders, how to diagnose them and how to best treat them. These are certainly important, but I’ve also learned over and over again that compassion is among the most essential aspects of being a gastroenterologist. My goal is to resolve disorders and provide relief so that people can live more enjoyable, productive and fulfilling lives. With gastrointestinal problems, genuine compassion for, interest in and dedication to each patient are vitally important to achieving this goal."
“I became a physician because I have compassion for others and want to help them. In the years that I’ve been specializing in digestive problems, I’ve only become more caring and compassionate, and a big part of this is personal. A family member’s gastrointestinal disease has given me insight into what it’s like to cope with these types of problems day to day. I see them from the perspective of an experienced, results-focused specialist and of a caring person who understands the personal, physical, mental and emotional impact. And I believe this is at the heart of the good healthcare that everyone deserves.”
