Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bhayani "Complex GI problems and cancers require specialized attention and more care than standard textbook medicine. I strive to give every patient that extra time, consideration, and attention needed to really address the disease, but also the symptoms and concerns. I treat each of my patients like a member of my family and many have my personal cell phone number.  There are no residents, interns, nurse practitioners or other intermediaries in the care, just me. My time is spent helping patients understand their disease and their treatment options, including non-surgical options because I am a disease specialist. We discuss the standard treatments and any new options that I or they can find. I am involved in recruiting for clinical trials, and have 3 fellowships beyond general surgery to bring the best and newest care to my patients. 

 I think that my patients and complex patients deserve that. "
