Meeting Our Patient's Expectations

At USF Health our goal is to make life better.  We recognize that IBD is a complex disease and often requires care from multiple providers in different specialties. Patients treated at the IBD Center receive continuity of care as we work closely and collectively with colorectal surgeons, gastroenterologists, and nutritionists.

We are building a true IBD home with a goal to coordinate care for all of our patients with a dietitian, social worker, primary care provider and obstetrician long term. Resources such as imaging, endoscopy, pathology, and consult services are available all in a coordinated care approach.
