SOME INTRODUCTORY THOUGHTSI specialize in the treatment of intestinal and liver disorders. My practice is set up to deal with these problems taking into consideration the patient's general medical conditions. At my office the staff still answers the phone and we make every attempt to treat you, the patient, with respect. We will make every effort to "follow through" in order to help you with your problems. However, medical care is a "team approach". Making sure to bring in your medications (or at least a list) as well as any pertinent past or current medical history will help my office and staff serve your needs better and expedite your care. We ask that as our patient, that if your condition should change over time that you contact us immediately. Also, we ask that you follow recommendations and if you are not able to do so that we are contacted as soon as practical to discuss alternatives.
