At the Gut-2-Health clinic, we are dedicated to harnessing a strong doctor-patient partnership during diagnosis and treatment of allergic-inflammatory disorders of the GI tract. At the individual patient level, a personal care team headed by one of our GI specialists coordinates each patient's care. The specialist meets regularly with the other team members to review individual patient cases and to update treatment plans. The team works with both the patient and the referring physician to coordinate a care plan designed to produce the best possible outcome. In addition to GI doctors, the team includes:
As part of our patient-centered focus, we are dedicated to having patients be active partners in their care through consultation and dialogue with physicians. Using information from patients, our doctors are exploring how diet, lifestyle and environment may impact GI health so that they can give our patients the most insightful information and advice to help manage their disease. We regularly publish our findings on these topics; some relevant articles are featured below.
To better serve patients, we are performing cutting-edge research in a variety of fields such as advanced imaging and the study of gut bacteria in the diagnosis and treatment of GI-related diseases.
We provide patients and referring physicians with an experienced access coordinator, a clinician who is available to assess patients’ needs and coordinate appointments. Contact the Gut-2-Health Program access coordinator.
Our specialists are recognized for their expertise in diagnosing and treating patients with complex GI diseases that have an allergic-inflammatory component such as eosinophilic esophagitis and microscopic colitis. We also specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of rare genetic syndromes such as familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) that lead to inflammation of the GI system.
Our doctors participate in community events throughout the year to help educate the public on how diet, lifestyle and environment can affect GI health.
