Professional Statement

  • Hello and thank you for taking the time to view our practice. I currently treat general gastrointestinal issues, including food allergies, irritable bowel conditions, acid reflux, and ulcer disease, as well as liver related diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, and colorectal cancer screenings. I accept same day and walk-in appointments. I perform procedures in our accredited office based surgical suite, which drastically reduces your out of pocket expenses compared to the hospital or an outpatient facility. I also perform procedures on weekends to minimize time off from work for my patients. I take an integrative and holistic approach to gastrointestinal diseases and treat the patient as a whole. I believe in incorporating lifestyle changes along with nutrition into my treatment plan. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
