Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Brinberg "As a gastroenterologist, I have seen first hand the importance of diet with respect to controlling GI diseases and symptoms. I have also come to believe that the microbiome that exists in our body play an important role for a healthy GI system. Therefore, I stress to all my patients to try eating food that is locally grown without pesticides or chemicals and to try taking probiotics on a regular basis. Not all diseases are that simple to treat, but it is important to take care of our body."

Dr. Brinberg is a very intelligent, caring physician. He spent a lot of time with me to help me understand my colitis. His office cared that I got my labs done & followed up with me to see how I was feeling with my new medication. Great experience seeing Dr. Brinberg.
