Dr. Gish has reduced his patient services to once a month, according to the office appointment service, and does not take new patients. This website, though copyrighted 2016, is obviously extremely out of date. Dr. Gish also does no GI work, only hepatology, so that information, too, is incorrect. Please update this site's information with the providers themselves annually so patients' time is not wasted.
