I take a very holistic approach to gastroenterology, and medicine in general. I stand at the intersection of traditional and non-traditional health care. I learned the traditional at the world-renowned Texas Medical Center -- and I learned the non-traditional through my own journey with reflux. This experience has taught me the power of integrating the art and science of medicine. What does this mean in practice? It means that treating you isn't just about high-tech procedures and imaging studies, but also about trust and empathy. It's not just about acute care medicine, but also about what I call "root care medicine." It's not just about relieving symptoms with medications, but also about helping you uncover what's driving the symptoms in the first place. And hopefully not needing medications indefinitely for them. I believe a patient's gastrointestinal imbalances are treated best with an approach that takes biological, psychological, cultural, and spiritual perspectives into account, as appropriate to the problems at hand. An approach that is certainly evidence-informed -- but also not evidence-enslaved. Because there is no one-size-fits-all in medicine. Every person is unique. What works best for me, or the population, may not work best for you. I have decided that the most effective model to serve you in this way is to be third-party free. This means I do not participate in any insurance networks. I am accountable to you directly -- not you and some insurance company that attempts to practice medicine on my behalf. This arrangement enhances the trust that is so vital to the patient-doctor relationship. My role in our relationship is to be your co-captain. To get you from acute care to root care, I can help you connect the dots in your digestive illness. Learn and apply a new map to your health. Find the unique route to turn your ship around. And chart a course to a new destination -- for good.Read more
