About Dr. Andrew Ippoliti

Dr. Ippoliti has extensive experience in gastroenterology and is a well-known expert both nationally and locally. He previously was on the faculty at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA where he rose to a professor in clinical medicine. Later he joined the faculty at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and was the associate chief of gastroenterology for over a decade. He has now moved to the Keck Medicine of USC in the same capacity. He has been involved in the training of many of the gastroenterologists practicing in the Los Angeles area and sees many second opinion consultations from them. He is known nationally as a key thought leader in inflammatory bowel disease and in gastroesophageal reflux disease. He has served on many advisory boards and has lectured at medical centers around the country and abroad. Dr. Ippoliti has practiced as a primary gastroenterologist for more than 30 years. He has generally been part of an academic group practice. During regular work hours, he is available by phone or email, while after hours and weekends are covered by the group. He encourages frequent follow-up visits especially with complex chronic illnesses, such as inflammatory bowel disease. He also believes in monitoring disease activity with ancillary tests such as laboratory, imaging and endoscopy. He establishes solid working relationships with colleagues in medicine, radiology, pathology and surgery to ensure the best possible patient care. While he tries to adhere to a schedule, he wants each patient to have an adequate amount of time to discuss his or her condition whether the patient is new or visiting for a follow-up. He can promise that since he is in a group practice, it is highly unlikely that an emergency case would interrupt his schedule.
