Care Philosophy

For the last 25 years I have developed a research and clinical interest in the diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. I created the first Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center at the Jewish General Hospital in Qubec a McGill University teaching hospital. I worked at a Scripps Clinic in California for over 10 years and became director there of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center and director of the fellowship program in gastroenterology and hepatology. I remain part of the inflammatory bowel disease group at Duke University. I also maintain clinical practice in the diagnosis and treatment of the whole spectrum of digestive problems and diseases. In my original training In gastroenterology I specialized in the early diagnosis of colon cancer through stool testing flexible sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy. In subsequent years I was also involved in numerous studies in the treatment of peptic ulcer disease through medications. I also continue my original interest of early prevention and diagnosis of colon cancer with colonoscopy and other methods.

in Chapel hill nc |
He was not interested in what I had to say. Only wanted tests and little background. Never looked at me direcly. Hurried. He told me I needed a certain test but then didn't send order. I had to ask nurse to ask him about it. Gave me no confidence. I have lots of great duke Drs but not him.
