IN HER OWN WORDS
“I love the aspect of doing colonoscopies because it gives you an opportunity to diagnose a person with a polyp and remove it before it actually becomes cancer. I also wanted to merge it with the surgical aspect so that opens up a world of Colon and Rectal surgery and also offers you an avenue for education, preventive medicine, and healthcare management; talking to the patient about diet, exercise, screening opportunities for colon cancer, which really is important because if found early, it can affect a cure. I see… anything that has to do with the colon, the rectum, and the anus.”
