Who am I?
I am a gastroenterologist with expertise in diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant diseases of gastrointestinal tract. I am board certified in internal medicine & Fellowship trained in Gastroenterology. I am both trained and certified for endoscopic procedure. I perform advanced diagnostic and therapeutic endo-procedures . While my main focus is endoluminal procedures such as endoscopy and ERCP, I practice all aspects of gastroenterology.
I employ a simple rule in my practice. I treat my patient the very same way I expect another physician treat me or my family. I practice “one patient at the time” philosophy and also believe in the uniqueness needs of each patient.
I am married with two children. Most of my free time is spent with my family. Our kids attend local public school. My hobby is home improvement projects.
