I chose gastroenterology because of the fascinating science and the chance to prevent cancer. I was attracted to a varied practice with time spent in the office, in the endoscopy center and in the hospital, plus the long- and short-term relationships with patients.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Maxwell "I really enjoy working one-on-one with patients to solve problems, preventing cancer with screening colonoscopy and seeing results, both procedurally and in the clinic. I am understanding, straightforward, detailed and thorough. I like to empower my patients to manage their own conditions by helping them understand their physiology, what can go wrong when they have certain diseases and their treatment options.

I am extremely thorough, and I provide evidence-based medicine to help patients achieve the best results and a better quality of life"

Dr. Maxwell was thorough and gentle in the investigation of my problems. He was great to explain his thought processes and rationale for particular experiments. In the end he discovered the issue and solved it. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. I feel like a new person. I'm grateful he took the time with me that I deserved.

Dr. Maxwell really listens and cares about his patients. He wants what is best for each individual and tailors his care to that rather than a set process. I would recommend him to anyone who is having gastrointestinal issues and isn't quite sure what the problem is. He will not just jump straight into referring a colonoscopy, but takes a thorough look at the history. I probably would have lost my job if it weren't for him and his care to ensure a solution was found. Thank you Doctor Maxwell!
