21 years ago as president of Unity Hospital medical/dental staff I began writing articles to give updates to my fellow colleagues under the banner JUST SO YOU KNOW. It was hugely popular and has become a tradition since. In late eighties and early nineties I was writing articles of common GI medical issues to educate our referring physicians under the name GUTCHECK as newsletter. Once I had set up our practice website in late nineties, articles were posted on our website under enjoyed by patients and physicians alike. 

Now as a retired Gastroenterologist I am beginning a new chapter in blogging.  my web site will contain common digestive disease related pearls in laymen language for the benefit of patients. Site will periodically post articles of medical and non-medical interest from other sources as well. I will offer surveys time to time.

Website will offer free advice to public seeking opinions and guidance about their digestive disorder symptoms. Within Monroe County I will be able to guide them about seeking expert in the area.

I am open for suggestions, will keep improving.
