Clinical Interest for Patients

My clinical interests include the care and treatment of patients with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, Novel treatments for IBD, as well as Immunodeficiencies affecting the gastrointestinal system, and other issues involving the GI tract.

Care Philosophy

I take into account the entire child in developing a plan for patient with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I work with Dieticians, Psychologists and Social Workers to develop a therapeutic plan. I strive to listen to patients concerns and thoughts and work with the patient and family to come to a mutually agreed upon therapy that I think will benefit my patients. I focus on evidence based medicine to guide these decisions.

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers

Research Interest for Referring Providers

My research interest include 1) the analysis of the mucosal immune system and it's role in inflammatory bowel disease, 2) Epigenetic regulation such as methylation, and acetylation and it's role in the development of IBD as well as it's role in the control of the mucosal immune system. I use these interests in order to develop novel targets in the lab for the treatment of autoimmune diseases such as IBD.
