Since gastrointestinal disorders can create a great deal of worry, anxiety and discomfort, I strive to provide top quality medical care in an efficient, patient friendly and compassionate environment. Utilizing the latest in technological advances and knowledge, the care will be tailored to each patient’s condition and special needs.
I strongly believe that patients come first, and those who choose my practice should feel that their concerns and questions are adequately addressed and answered in a supportive way. I welcome and encourage patient participation in their health care as I believe proper education is the foundation of good health.
I am very respectful of patient time and privacy. In my practice every effort is being made to ensure easy access, and to minimize waiting time. Patient feedback is always welcome.
