I want each of my patients to experience individualized care and to feel comfortable expressing how they feel to me. I do all I can to make them feel at ease. I care for patients with the majority of gastrointestinal complaints but I have a special interest in Hemorrhoids treatments, Crohn’s disease, constipation, IBS, GERD, and Heartburn.
