About Cristian Dominguez, M.D.

Being the first person in my family to become a doctor, I take pride in achieving my medical degree through perseverance and hard work. With a deep sense of purpose, I strive to bring the best possible care to each patient I see. Your health and well-being are my top priorities, and I look forward to partnering with you on your healthcare journey.

I am a dedicated gastroenterologist with expertise in a wide range of gastrointestinal conditions, specializing in the treatment of reflux/regurgitation, colon cancer screening, fatty liver disease, and cirrhosis. As a native Spanish speaker, I am passionate about providing extensive education and support to the Hispanic community, fostering a culturally sensitive approach to healthcare.

Why Gastroenterology?

A transformative experience during my third year of medical school profoundly influenced my decision to pursue a career as a gastroenterologist. As I observed my GI attending physician navigate the complexities of various gastrointestinal conditions, a particular incident stood out: the life-saving moment of a patient's bleeding ulcer through endoscopic therapy. Witnessing the immediate impact of such interventions fueled my passion for gastroenterology. Moreover, my hand-eye coordination skills found a fitting application in gastroenterology, where there was a delicate balance between clinical patient interactions and performing endoscopic procedures. Gastroenterology provides a unique balance, allowing me to take care of clinic patients while performing simple and advanced endoscopic procedures. This dual aspect of the specialty, combining patient care with procedural expertise, resonated with my skills and aspirations, reinforcing my commitment to a career in Gastroenterology.

What Can Patients Expect?

When you enter our gastroenterology clinic, expect a healthcare experience combining expertise with warmth and collaboration. As a board-certified gastroenterologist, I prioritize staying current with the latest information, literature, and treatments to ensure the highest quality of care. Beyond my knowledge, you'll find a compassionate, charismatic, and approachable professional who values patient engagement. I believe in actively listening to your concerns and working together to formulate a personalized treatment plan. Our friendly clinic staff is a cohesive team dedicated to providing you with the best possible care. From the moment you arrive, anticipate an environment where expertise meets empathy, and your well-being is our shared priority.
