I am a native of New Orleans, Louisiana and have had the opportunity to train at various academic centers around the country. I earned my Medical Degree from the University of Chicago, Pritzker School of Medicine and then went on to complete my residency in internal medicine in Philadelphia at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. I then finished up my training in New York City by completing a general gastroenterology fellowship at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and an extra year of advanced endoscopy fellowship at Weill Cornell Medical Center.
Dallas has become my home along with that of my wife and two wonderful children. We have found Dallas to be an amazing metroplex with fantastic opportunities in education, culture, sports and food. Dallas has become not just a home, but also our community that we hope to give back to as we raise our family.
I feel very fortunate to love going to work everyday and pursue my passion of being a therapeutic endoscopist. I have spent a significant portion of my life learning and training to be a gastroenterologist and interventionalist because I truly believe it helps patients in a profound way. Endoscopy and new interventional techniques are evolving very rapidly and offering novel diagnostic and therapeutic options for patients for a wide variety of disorders in a minimally invasive fashion. There are so many diseases that 10 years ago absolutely required more invasive interventions such as surgery for management, but can now be handled completely from inside the body using an endoscope. I know this makes patients happier as they have faster recovery times with less scarring of the body. One of the most gratifying aspects of my job is having a patient smile or thank me in the recovery room after undergoing an endoscopic procedure knowing they avoided a major surgery and are going home that same day with almost no recovery time.
Some of the procedures I perform are novel and still in evolution. Therefore it is of utmost importance for me to have a strong rapport with my patients and earn their trust. The purpose of my clinic visits is to answer my patients’ questions and have them leave with a strong understanding of the procedure I plan to do, why I’m doing it and the scientific literature supporting it. Having an honest and compassionate relationship with each of my patients is a requirement. My goal is to perform endoscopic procedures at their highest and most effective level to help patients and at the same time advance the field through teaching and research.
