About

Bio

I am a Pediatric Gastroenterologist, trained at Children's Hospital Boston. I have a special focus in allergic gastrointestinal diseases, and in cystic fibrosis. I also treat patients with general gastrointestinal problems.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
