As a physician, I have always enjoyed caring for patients, but what drew me to gastroenterology was the interaction of preventive and ongoing care. While I understand that a problem may show itself as a specific disease, I know that treating it often requires more than performing a great procedure. Educating my patients about preoperative and postoperative care and explaining disease processes is an essential part of my everyday practice.
With more than 20 years’ experience, I’ve found that strong communication is the basis for earning your trust. I also believe it helps you heal more quickly in addition to helping me become a better physician.
