As a specialist in the area of Gastroenterology, I see a wide variety of patients with problems related to the gastrointestinal tract. The approach that I take for all patients stresses education about symptoms and their causes. I feel that the best informed patient is the one that will do the best!
An important part of evaluation and treatment in Gastroenterology is the use of endoscopy. It has allowed more accurate diagnoses and reassurance to patients. Screening colonoscopy and the removal of colon polyps reduces the risk of colon cancer and is an important part of my practice as well.
In the clinic, I have extensive experience in the treatment of patients with inflammatory bowel disease. The development of new therapies in recent years has made this an exciting area.
I also volunteer as a Health Officer and Medical Advisor to YMCA Camp Menogyn on the Gunflint Trail. To support this work I am trained in Wilderness Medicine as well.
