About Me

When you’ve been given a diagnosis like irritable bowel syndrome and then just told to live with it or deal with it, it’s very difficult for patients. To me, it’s all about education, communication, self-management. I’m not an authoritative-type of physician. I don’t dictate care. It really has to be a collaboration with me.
