Care Philosophy

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.

Patient Comments (1)
in Charlotte, NC |
Horrible experience. Called during an acute illness and never heard back. However, I saw her two days prior and she told me if things didn't improve to call back. Stopped responding to messages on portals. Did not even listen or feel abdomen. Talked down to me about medications despite knowing I was a pharmacist. Changed doctors and been pain free for a year. Without pain meds or any clinics. Just a doctor that listened.
