The physician-patient relationship is sacred, and I take the trust my patients place in me very seriously. Given the complex ways in which gastrointestinal disorders can affect an individual and cause suffering, physician-patient communication takes on a greater relevance in this particular medical specialty. My goal is to first listen to my patients' concerns respectfully and empathetically. Next, with the patient as my equal partner, I aim to thoughtfully formulate a plan of action uniquely suited to my patients. Herein lies the art of medicine, which I find to be meaningful and fulfilling.
