Clinical Interests
My clinical interests include the care and treatment of patients with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, Novel treatments for IBD, as well as Immunodeficiencies affecting the gastrointestinal system, and other issues involving the GI tract.

Care Philosophy
I take into account the entire child in developing a plan for patient with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I work with Dieticians, Psychologists and Social Workers to develop a therapeutic plan. I strive to listen to patients concerns and thoughts and work with the patient and family to come to a mutually agreed upon therapy that I think will benefit my patients. I focus on evidence based medicine to guide these decisions.

Personal Interests
In my spare time I enjoy skiing, hiking, cooking and my children
