Having completed fellowships in both clinical nutrition and gastroenterology, Dr. Mohiuddin addresses a wide spectrum of gastrointestinal disorders. He performs various general GI procedures, including colonoscopy, hemorrhoid banding, ERCP, capsule endoscopy, and more. Beyond his clinical practice, Dr. Mohiuddin is actively involved in gastroenterological research, particularly focusing on GERD.

"We are excited to join forces with a Gastroenterology and Nutrition Specialists," said Joseph Garcia, CEO of Gastro Health. "Through this collaboration, Gastro Health reaffirms its ongoing commitment to establishing partnerships with top-tier GI practices, ensuring the continued delivery of excellent care to the communities we serve."

This partnership provides me with additional support, allowing me to concentrate on delivering optimal medical care to the community."
