My primary role at Texas Children's Hospital is that of a clinician. I see patients in both the outpatient and inpatient setting, taking care of a variety of gastrointestinal conditions. These range from patients with common problems such as chronic abdominal pain, gastroesophageal reflux, chronic constipation, diarrhea and failure to thrive, to less common conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease. As co-director of the Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Diseases Clinic, I see patients with allergic gastrointestinal problems as well. My clinical research activities focus on this area of pediatric gastroenterology.
