As a pediatric gastroenterologist and researcher, I strive to provide the best possible care to children with liver disease and to discover new diagnostic tests and new treatments to improve their outcomes. I believe that every child deserves personalized care.
I am inspired by the children I see. In caring for them, I am grateful to their parents who are always eager to work with me and the liver team to restore their health. I truly enjoy working with the liver team and with colleagues from other specialties to make our clinic a “one-stop-shop” where patients can benefit from multidisciplinary care and the timely access to treatment.
In my practice, I value listening to my patients and their parents. I want to learn not just about their condition, but also what makes them happy. My team and I are passionate about providing excellent care to children with liver disease, and we work together to choose state-of-the-art treatment that will fit their precise needs.
I am honored that my colleagues nominated me for listing among the Top Doctors in Cincinnati, as well as electing me to the American Society for Clinical Investigation and the American Association of Physicians. In 2020, I will serve the field of hepatology as the president of the American Association for Studies of Liver Diseases, the largest liver association in the world. Their mission is to prevent and cure liver diseases in children and adults. I am also honored to hold a professorship named for legendary Cincinnati Children’s gastroenterologist Dr. William Balistreri.
When I am not helping patients or doing research, I enjoy being with my family, road biking and reading.
