Dr. Bachwich's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bachwich "I am from Flint, Michigan, and received my medical degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. I completed residency in internal medicine at University of Michigan's University Hospital and stayed there to complete a fellowship in gastroenterology and hepatology. Then, I completed an additional two years of gastroenterology fellowship training at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. I served on the faculty at Harvard Medical School and then at the University of Pennsylvania prior to joining Rapid City Medical Center in 1997. I practice all areas of gastroenterology and hepatology, with particular interests in inflammatory bowel disease and colorectal cancer prevention. Together with my wife, who is also a physician, I have a son and a daughter."
