Philosophy of Our Practice
My philosophy in practice is competence, compassion and communication.
These three things result in confidence in what we do, assuring better care and successful outcomes for our patients.
I don't practice defensive medicine: good medicine is the best defense. Optimal use of current innovations and judicious use of scientific knowledge, linked to a logical mind, gives superior outcomes and minimizes complications related to unnecessary tests and treatments of no or minimal proven clinical benefit. My clinical staff help me to achieve this goal.
My research interests give me access to the latest treatments, keeping me at the cutting edge of gastroenterology. We pride ourselves on educating our patients which is why you can find information on services to help treat abdominal pain, diarrhea, heartburn, even colon cancer screenings.
