Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Van Os graduated from Rice University and then attended Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, Texas, graduating in 1985. His Internal Medicine residency was completed at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio in 1988. He followed this with a faculty position at UT-San Antonio as an Assistant Professor of General Internal Medicine. Between 1992 and 1996, Dr. Van Os completed fellowships in Gastroenterology and advanced therapeutic endoscopy at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He was certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in 1995. Since 1996, Dr. Van Os has been in practice with Associates in Gastroenterology in Colorado Springs. In addition to general gastroenterology and hepatology, Dr. Van Os has special interests in therapeutic endoscopy, pancreatic and biliary diseases as well as the management of inflammatory bowel disease.
