I have always been fascinated by science, and in particular, medicine. My inspiration has been from seeing my uncle, a surgeon, and my older brother, a physician, practice medicine. I believe that the best way to connect with my patients is to give them enough time to share their concerns and to actively listen to them. I have practiced gastroenterology for more than 21 years allowing me to gain a comprehensive knowledge of gastrointestinal diseases and their complex presentations. Over the past 21 years, I have performed thousands of procedures to treat digestive disorders.
