About

Bio

I practice gastroenterology and have practiced general internal medicine and a large 240 physician medical group. A special interest in hepatitis C, inflammatory bowel disease i.e. ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease. I have been in practice for 34 years. I've been actively involved in our Regional Medical Center and had been in the department of medicine and Chief of Staff.

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.
