Our practice currently has five physicians. All physicians are board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in the specialty field of gastroenterology. Our physicians have acquired additional training and expertise in the fields of Liver Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Celiac Disease, Pill Camera Endoscopy, and Gastroesophageal Reflux disease.
Our clinicians provide care both in the outpatient and hospital setting. Our office is located in West Akron. Emergent and consultative care is provided at Akron City Hospital/Summa Health.
