What drew me to Gastroenterology: Hearing from my patients during my residency and hospitalist job, " when is my bleeding going to stop? " stimulated me to learn a career of doing scopes and take care of problems. It is an amazing opportunity to get knowledge of taking care of complicated GI pathology. It is very rewarding to see when patients recover from not eating at all to eating regular diet.

What drew me to Gastroenterology: Gastroenterology is a beautiful blend of anatomy, physiology, and pathology. It allows me to participate in patient care on multiple levels including both cerebral and procedural and blend the worlds of medicine, oncology, infectious disease, endocrinology, and surgery. Gastroenterology is a culmination of multiple organs working together in a system including the stomach, liver, intestines, gallbladder, and pancreas; all relating to one of my favorite things to do, eating!
