ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS

As the Medical Director of GI for Kids, PLLC, I am committed to the belief that all children should have access to excellent healthcare, including all pediatric sub-specialties. Our clinic has an open-door policy and we try to accommodate all patients in a timely manner. Prevention is an important focus of the practice. Treating children with gastroenterology diseases is our top priority, while prevention is the motivation for our comprehensive staff serving these patients.

I became interested in making a difference in children’s health when, at 12 years of age, I experienced a severe illness. Throughout my career I have served as Chief of Pediatric Gastroenterology at the University of Kentucky and then as Acting Chief of Pediatric Gastroenterology at Tulane University. My wife, Dr. Salwa Alkhoury, is a primary care pediatrician at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. We have two children, Mark, age 16, and Laura, age 19. I love spending time with my family and gardening, and I feel blessed to live in this area.

The mission of GI for Kids is to be Center of Excellence for Pediatric Gastroenterology on a local, regional and national level. I am committed to serving the children and families at multiple convenient locations by providing compassionate and competent care along with state of the art in office testing.
