“I chose a career in Gastroenterology because it provides me with a specialty where I can interact with and help my patients in various ways … screening for colon cancer, removal of colon polyps, control of acid reflux, work-up of chronic abdominal pain, treatment of hepatitis (B or C), diagnosis & management of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative Colitis), endoscopic procedures & therapies, and clinical management of multiple other gastroenterological disease processes. Having done all my post-graduate training in Houston’s Texas Medical Center, I have grown to love this city, its people and its culture. I hope that I continue to have the opportunity to serve my patients here to the best of my ability and expertise.”
