Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kurz "I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of common digestive conditions including colitis, irritable bowel disease (IBS), heartburn, ulcers, pancreatic and liver diseases including Hepatitis C. I also treat colorectal cancer and strongly recommend colonoscopy screening for men and women over the age of 50. Colorectal cancer is highly treatable when caught early."
