Care Philosophy

I manage the full range of colorectal conditions, with a special interest in anorectal diseases and disorders of the pelvic floor. I perform Colonoscopy and minimally invasive surgery and I also provide specialized diagnostic testing and treatment for fecal incontinence. I provide office and non-operative treatment for multiple anorectal conditions. I believe in treating patients with care and compassion. I want all patients to feel comfortable and I want no patient to fear their office visit.

Patient Comments (1)
in Portland, OR |
Poor bedside manner, didn't offer solutions, left her office in tears and embarrasement. She will only help you if you seem like you have money. She profiled me as an opiate user and then never called to set up surgery.
