Overview

Services

I am board certified in Pediatrics and a subspecialized Pediatric Gastroenterologist. I have specific expertise and interest in managing patients with disorders of gut-brain interaction and GI motility disorders such as cyclic vomiting syndrome, chronic nausea, irritable bowel syndrome, functional dyspepsia and gastroparesis. Part of our nationally recognized GI motility program at the Children's Wisconsin Pediatric Neurogastroenterology and Motility Program, I evaluate complex patients from across the country and internationally. I am trained to perform motility testing including esophageal, antroduodenal, colon and anorectal manometry. My research is focused on developing better diagnostic tools and therapies for complex disorders such as chronic nausea and gastroparesis. My primary goal is to help children and families who suffer from chronic and debilitating GI disorders achieve the best possible care and quality of life.
