About Sohaib Faruqi, M.D.

Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?

I became interested in gastroenterology during my internship and residency years. The broad spectrum which this field encompasses, fascinated me greatly. I was intrigued by the diagnostic and therapeutic processes involved in this field, which I feel offer a tremendous opportunity for growth, not only as a professional, but also as a human being. I derive great personal satisfaction from the thoughts that I am able to help a fellow human being, while at the same time pursuing a challenging and rewarding career.

Do you have a specialty of interest within GI?

I am board-certified in gastroenterology and specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of various gastrointestinal disorders including diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver gall bladder and pancreas. I have expertise in various endoscopic procedures, such as upper GI endoscopy (EGD), colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), and capsule endoscopy.
