My Areas of Practice
I believe the best clinicians offer a high level of medical expertise as well the ability connect with patients on a personal level.  I strive to bring both of these attributes to my practice.  I am interested in the full spectrum of diseases of the digestive tract, and I perform many routine endoscopic procedures on a daily basis.  My primary area of interest is a procedure known as ERCP - a complex endoscopic procedure involving the biliary tree and the pancreas.  I spent an additional year of fellowship to get extra training in ERCP and I have performed several thousands of these procedures during my career.  I have also published many book chapters and journal articles on this procedure.
