Trust.

What can a patient expect when they have you as a doctor?
That I will always try and share a smile.

What do you find most encouraging about the work you do?
Of all the medical specialties, gastroenterology offers the greatest chance to achieve positive results and even cures. Also, healthcare is incredibly diverse and constantly expanding, the opportunities are endless.
