Celiac Center

Our Team

Our multidisciplinary team—including a gastroenterologist, nutrition specialist, clinical psychologist, and dietician—helps patients manage their celiac disease so they can enjoy a higher quality of life. After patients undergo comprehensive testing to confirm a diagnosis of celiac disease, they meet with our team of specialists to plan an effective gluten-free diet. Typically, this diet will help to relieve symptoms of celiac disease.
