Profile

Personal Bio

Treatment Philosophy

I have specialty training in colon cancer prevention and the management of patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I am currently researching microscopic colitis and early detection of colon cancer. I lead an active research team and am also involved in clinical trials for ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. I pride myself on being readily accessible to accommodate the needs of my patients, and am involved in educating my peers as well as patients on the complex nature of IBD.
