Dr. Vinita Jacob - I value the amount of effort and discipline she put into her work promoting well-being. It starts with her remarkable efficient team. During the introduction period, every detail of your medical history is meticulously recorded. By the time she is ready to see you, she has all the necessary data to evaluate your condition and make sound recommendation immediately. Due to her expertise and kindness, she is overbooked, and you have to wait quite a while to get your appointment. The wait is worth it!

I really feel I finally found the right gastro after 10 years with IBD. It is a one stop shop. I save time and money being able to utilize the on-sight joint specialist, nutritionist, imaging, colonoscopy, lab testing, etc.
