“I enjoy gastroenterology because of the chance it give me to make a difference in my patient’s lives. I enjoy all aspects of gastroenterology from curing hepatitis C, to managing Crohns disease and Ulcerative colitis and to diagnosing and preventing colon cancer. Gastroenterology encompasses a wide spectrum of diseases and symptoms which encourages me to stay on the forefront of knowledge as new discoveries are made every month. From a personal standpoint, my grandfather died of colorectal cancer that was diagnosed too late. If found at early stages it is curable but he did not undergo a colonoscopy until it was too late when he had symptoms. His life would have been dramatically different had the cancer been found at an earlier stage.

I grew up in Utah having attended high school, university, and medical school all here in Salt Lake City. It is a wonderful place to live, flourish, and grow. My job is to help my patients maximize their gastrointestinal health so that they can flourish in our beautiful state. Through careful one-on-one discussion and appropriate use of lab testing, radiology, and endoscopy, I will try my best to find the cause of whatever is concerning my patients. Our office is dedicated to promptly answering our patients’ concerns and questions.”
