Gastroenterology Practice Philosophy

My goal with my patients health care is shared decision making and open communication. I do my best to explore all possible treatment options – both traditional and natural – for my patients. We then decide together as a team which of those options would work best in their situation. Then I have multiple channels available for open communication as I am a believer that the more I stay up to date on what is changing with my patients and what concerns/questions they have, the better I can help them.
