Why Gut Health Is So Important
You’ve probably heard the term “gut health” and know that “good” gut health is desirable. But what does it really mean to have a healthy gut?
It means feeling your best when you eat without discomfort, pain or bloating. It means getting enough nutrients to support your energy levels, immune system,and other organs so your body can function at its best.
I am a triple board-certified gastroenterologist, internist, and lifestyle medicine physician. I specialize in digestive disorders, which include liver disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and nutrition based-disorders, such as obesity and constipation.
What I Provide
I educate and empower you with the evidence-based digestive strategies you need to feel your best. These stem from my 10+ years of medical training, three board certifications, and clinical experience in guiding people just like you through their different digestive and medical conditions.
