Clinical Care

The Section of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition is comprised of five pediatric gastroenterologists and hepatologists, one nurse practitioner, clinical nurse and three fellows.

Our physicians and nurses see patients in New Haven (at Yale-New Have Children’s Hospital and Long Wharf) and at our satellite offices in Brookfield, Guillford, and Greenwich.
