I am proud to have a research facility, Gastroenterology Research of San Antonio (GERSA), located within my practice.  We are also the national headquarters for Gastroenterology Research of America (GAME). The GERSA physicians, nurses, technicians and administrative personnel are dedicated to providing the highest quality medical services and care available.  Being involved with an onsite research facility allows my practice to stay current with the latest technical and pharmaceutical developments in the field of gastroenterology, and helps to provide my patients with the most advanced gastrointestinal treatment available.

Our medical and research team is comprised of some of Texas’s most capable and knowledgeable physicians, who have been on the cutting edge of many pharmaceutical and endoscopic therapies. Along with the rest of our staff, they pledge to do all they can to alleviate your stress and uncertainty while making your experience with us as comfortable and as effective as possible. In addition to general gastrointestinal research, our physicians have special interests and have done studies in Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, novel endoscopic surgical techniques, motility disorders, non-cardiac chest pain, esophageal disorders, small bowel capsule endoscopy, and endoscopic ultrasound.

If you would like additional information on the studies GERSA is involved with, please call our research team at 210-615-3848 or check out our research web site at www.gastroresearchers.com.
