I am an academic esophagologist and medical educator.

I am the program director for the Gastroenterology and Hepatology Training Program at Duke.

My clinical area of specialty is in esophageal disorders.  I see patients with a wide range of esophageal problems including: gastroesophageal reflux diseaase (GERD); swallowing disorders; primary esophageal motility disorders including achalasia, esophageal spasm, and jackhammer esophagus; Barrett's esophagus; and Esophageal cancer.

I also practice as a general gastroenterologist and see patients for routine screening colonoscopies.
