Treatment Philosophy

Working in the Bay Area as a gastroenterologist for many years has been very rewarding. The diverse patient population in the South Bay Area has exposed me to a number of gastrointestinal diseases not commonly seen in other parts of the country. My goal is to develop a focused and cost-effective treatment plan for every patient. I strive to deliver care that is compassionate and proactive, from the office to the endoscopy suite.
