  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

He's Fantastic!!

Years ago, my primary referred me to him for rectal bleeding and a family history of colon cancer. He treated my diverticular disease and does my colonoscopies every 5 years. You are more than a patient to him. You are a person, and he is meticulous in his care. While he is preparing his equipment for the exam, its like visiting a family friend, making the procedure feel more routine and less intimidating. (for me it now has become routine).He is always sure you are comfortable, and without any pain or discomfort. If you have any gastrointestinal problems I would highly recommend him.

Respects your brain, fixes your bowel

In '85 Mom had emergency bowel surgery. Her surgical team planned a 2nd to close her stoma, expected her to die on the table. !!?! Dr Schnure, New Guy in Town, said we leave stoma, start TPN, she goes home. His confidence became ours, his joy at her progress increased Mom's determination, his skill sent her home 90 days later.
