Clinical Interest for Patients
My main clinical interest is in the medical and endoscopic management of patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) including Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. The UCH Crohn's and Colitis Center utilizes a multi-disciplinary team of IBD focused clinicians and support staff (nutritionsit, social workers, and nurse clinical coordinators) to provide cutting edge care for our IBD patients.
Utilizing a multidisciplinary and comprehensive diagnostic approach combined with cutting edge treatment options, I strive to provide the best healthcare possible for my patients.
