I. I am the Medical Director for the Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Program at Yale University. I treat patients in three locations - Temple Medical Building, Yale Health, and Yale-New Haven Hospital. The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Program is a multi-disciplinary program with medical, surgical, pediatric, pathology, and radiology specialists all participating in the care of our patients. Our program offers specialized nursing care and education with a nurse practitioner who specializes in patients with inflammatory bowel disease as well as an ostomy nurse who specializes in ostomy and wound care. Patients are self-referred as well as referred from other physicians. To schedule an appointment, please call 203-785-4138 (Temple Medical Building) or 203-432-0335 (Yale Health).

In addition to multi-disciplinary patient care, our program offers opportunities for patients to participate in research studies that evaluate mood disorders in IBD; treatment choices in IBD; and participation in multi-center new drug treatment protocols.

Clinical Trials

New treatments for many conditions are tested in clinical trials, which ultimately bring lifesaving new drugs and devices to the patients who need them most. By participating in a clinical trial, you may get access to the most advanced treatments for your condition, and help determine their benefits for future patients.
