    Biography
    “I consider myself extremely privileged to be able to comprehensively and compassionately care for people with digestive health issues. It is humbling to have patients often confide in me their most sensitive problems, which they may not even share entirely with their closest family. Building a strong, trusting physician-patient relationship is a foundation I always strive to achieve, as I believe this is a vital step to treatment success. Treating each patient as if he or she were a member of my own family is a standard of care I uphold in my practice.”
