FAQs

I specialize in digestive disorders. I primarily work with gastroparesis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, chronic diarrhea, chronic constipation, gas/bloating, pancreatitis, diverticulosis/diverticulitis, nausea/vomiting, reflux/GERD, and gastritis. If you are unsure about your diagnosis, send me a message.

We’ll start by discussing your current symptoms, medications, recent testing (if applicable), and diagnosis. I’ll ask you to share information about your current food choices, followed by my dietary recommendations. During our partnership, I’ll help you develop realistic dietary strategies designed around your food preferences, grocery budget, and cooking abilities. You will be provided detailed notes/educational materials following our appointment.
