We provide care for infants, children and young adults with medical issues to their gastrointestinal tract. We diagnose and treatment conditions related to the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, liver, gallbladder and pancreas. We also work as part of a team of providers to support infants and children with specialized nutritional needs. We also perform many procedures related to these conditions, including endoscopy, colonoscopy, esophageal pH monitoring and breath testing.
We provide outpatient consultations at multiple locations and inpatient consultations at Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel and Providence St. Vincent’s Medical Center. If you believe your child requires our services, please discuss this with your child’s health care provider or give us a call to schedule an appointment.
We partner with Randall Childrens' Hospital to provide visits with a Pediatric Dietitian in our office. Our dietitians all have extensive experience with complex nutritional issues in children. Children with inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, eosinophilic esophagitis, failure to thrive and many other GI conditions can benefit from nutritional evaluation and counseling.
Since 2005, we have gained extensive experience as an in-office infusion center. By offering this service in our office, rather than in an off-site infusion center, we are able to closely coordinate our patients’ care, lower costs and provide on-going education.
IMPROVE CARE NOW FOR IBD
We are proud to partner with Legacy Health to be the first group in Oregon to become part of Improve Care Now. Improve Care Now is a nationwide active, open learning health network that uses collaboration and data to drive improvements in the care and health of all kids with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Since Improve Care Now began, the percentage of kids with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis who are in remission (feeling well, no symptoms, fully active) has increased from 50% to over 75% – all without new medicines.

LIVER TRANSPLANT CARE
While there is not currently a pediatric liver or small bowel transplant program in Oregon, all of our physicians have extensive experience caring for patients before and after transplantation. We work closely with Stanford University’s and Seattle Children’s pediatric transplant programs. We host quarterly clinics with the Stanford pediatric liver/small bowel intestinal team to ensure diligent care before and after transplantation.
