About

Bio

I have been a gastroenterologist for the last 30 yrs in Philadelphia, Pa. As you might expect, my exposure to people with gastrointestinal illnesses over this time has afforded me a broad foundation in the field which I believe will benefit you. I welcome your questions concerning your gi health and hope that my experience will translate into an improvement in your current condition.
