Dr. Loomba is quite knowledgeable about the condition I was referred to him for. I received a standard packet of information prepared by him, and he went through it to discuss my particular preliminary diagnosis with a bit of detail and the how to move forward in assessment and treatment. This was my first visit, so we shall see how this will play out over time.

I was sent to Dr. Loomba when an unrelated abdominal ultrasound indicated that I had a fatty liver. In my treatment, Dr. Loomba utilized state-of-the-art imaging and laboratory tests to help diagnose me and provide a plan for action. I also worked with his research group who works to develop less-invasive ways to diagnose liver disease using imaging and other non-surgical methods. Thankfully I was on a good road to recovery and his kind words and immense knowledge helped me get to a path that is sustainable for me.

Dr. Loomba is a fantastic provider. He is thorough, spends time with his patients, and clearly cares about a growing area of concern in medicine: fatty liver disease. I have been seeing Dr. Loomba for the past three-four years and he has consistently followed up with me and is always available to answer questions. Additionally, I participate in a research team led by his lab. They are thorough, understanding, and competent. You will not find a better hepatology team.
