Biography

Colorectal surgeons address a part of the body that we dont often discuss outside of a medical or very private environment. The opportunity to provide a safe space for my patients to discuss and address what can be a sensitive set of medical issues is a key reason I decided to become a colorectal surgeon. From the first step of diagnosis, I partner with my patients to better understand their medical problems and identify the best way to get them back to their work, personal and family lives. I trained with leaders in colon and rectal surgery and gastroenterology at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, where I completed a fellowship in colorectal surgery, and in Chicago, where I did my residency in general surgery at the University of Chicago and graduated from Rush Medical College. I learned that maximizing the benefits of surgery results from a patient-centered focus and, when needed, collaborating with other specialists to incorporate surgery into a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. I have found the same commitment to individualized patient care, state-of-the-art techniques, and team-based strategies here at Legacy. My practice includes the treatment of colon and rectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, as well as anorectal complaints and what is traditionally regarded as Proctology. Although Im a surgeon, I also place a strong emphasis on prevention and surveillance, through colonoscopy and in some cases, regular office visits. My clinical research focuses on C. difficile colitis, an increasingly common diarrheal colon infection, and finding ways to more effectively predict, treat, and prevent life-threatening infections that might lead to further surgery. Hobbies include: Hiking, Traveling, Music

Patient Ratings and Comments

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website
