I perform a wide variety of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures including colonoscopy and upper endoscopy (EGD) and has a special interest in diseases of the digestive tract, biliary system, liver and pancreas with proficiencies in Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), diagnostic small bowel capsule endoscopy (a pill swallowed to examine and take videos of the small intestine), and breath tests to diagnose and subsequently treat small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. I treat both chronic and acute GI problems and focuses on a strong preventative approach for diseases such as colon, pancreatic and esophageal cancer.
