Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?
I believe gastroenterology is a fascinating field because of the variety of conditions that can be treated including esophageal, gastric, small bowel, colon, pancreatic, and liver disease. In addition as a gastroenterologist, I have the ability to provide colon cancer screening and prevention at the same time. It’s really a great career!
Do you have a specialty of interest in Gastroenterology?
I have additional training, certification, experience, and interest in advanced liver disease (transplant hepatology), but enjoy all aspects of gastroenterology. Colon cancer prevention/screening, and the workup of abdominal pain is also an interest.
What do you and your family enjoy doing in your spare time?
I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter. I love the outdoors including running, hiking, grilling, and gardening. I enjoy rooting for my home town sports teams and hanging out with friends.
