Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?
I became interested in GI at a young age because my father was a gastroenterologist. Despite that, I kept an open mind about specialties throughout medical school and residency. In the end, I found GI to be the most interesting.
What do you and your family enjoy doing in your spare time?
My family and I enjoy traveling, sailing and attending LSU football games.
