Im a general gastroenterologist who sees patients with inflammatory bowel disease anemia reflux and women with pelvic floor disorders. I treat conditions that people often dont like to talk about even though they are real problems. I spend a lot of my time removing polyps and performing biopsies to make a diagnosis. Its very satisfying to actually see the problem take a picture of it and show the patient at the end of the procedure. And we usually fix it at the same time which is also very rewarding. I think we take fantastic care of our patients from the nursing staff to the physicians to everybody involved. Outside of work I enjoy hiking which I do locally at least twice a week.
