Having watched my father practice medicine for 40 years and having practiced Gastroenterology myself for 20 years, I have had the opportunity to witness the many changes in medicine. Advances in technology as well as modern techniques in diagnostic and therapeutic procedures have been amazing. However, the one constant that I feel is the most important when choosing a physician is the doctor-patient relationship. The ability to sit down and listen compassionately to a person having a medical problem no matter how common or complex and really understand them and involve them in the whole process from diagnosis to treatment is what really sets that doctor apart. I pride myself with my technical abilities both in the office and in the endoscopy suite performing procedures as evidenced by my exceeding benchmark statistics such as polyp detection rates, low complication rates, and cecal intubation rates. However, my real pride comes from my desire to listen and interact with my patients on a personal level, and to try to involve them in their diagnostic and therapeutic journey. That relationship is why I became a doctor in the first place. For me, patients who chose me as their physician are a privilege, not just a number.
