Personally Speaking

I chose to become a gastroenterologist because I was interested in the varied disease processes that can occur in the GI tract. The stomach is different from the small intestine which is different from the liver and the colon. I like that I can see patients in the office and then do advanced endoscopic procedures, combining those two aspects of medical care and helping people in a broad way. Most days I’ll spend half the day in the office and the other half in the hospital.

My biggest strength as a physician is trying to continue to grow and helping to expand the available work we can do in the gastroenterology division. I’ll go to conferences, talks, and to endoscopy courses to expand my skills and see what other folks are doing with the technology. People appreciate it when we can do more locally and make it convenient for them to get their care.  

I get the most satisfaction in my job when I can see someone through from problem to solution. Sometimes it’s not the cure when you diagnose someone with a growth, and we refer them to an oncologist or surgeon, but it helps them to move forward in their care. I like being part of that care team.  I also like seeing so many people every day, and them letting me into their lives in a very personal way is humbling.
