Join Us in Welcoming our New Nutritionist
We are excited to introduce Ning Wan, R.D., to our team. Ning joins us with more than 10 years of experience in counseling children of all ages and their families on special nutritional requirements for a variety of conditions. Although Ning is a busy mom, she will offer to our patients an expanded schedule that includes after-school appointments. Please read more about Ning on Our Team page.
Whether your child has special dietary needs, specific nutritional deficiencies, or you just have questions about best practices for feeding children at specific ages, our registered dietician can provide guidance. Patients can have a nutritional consultation with or without a visit to a gastroenterologist. If your child does need a gastroenterological evaluation, we will be able to schedule a timely consultation.
For your convenience and because the patient is required to attend this appointment, we offer after-school appointments.
Contact our receptionist for further information.
Santa Cruz and Tracy Hours Expand
Christine Nguyen, M.D. is available to see patients two Tuesdays monthly in Santa Cruz, California. The office is located just behind Dominican Hospital where Dr. Nguyen is privileged to perform routine colonoscopy and endoscopy procedures. Our insurance contracts include Physicians Medical Group of Santa Cruz and Central California Alliance for Health.
Dr. Abi-Hanna has added another Wednesday to his Tracy office schedule now totally 3 visits per month. This change has allowed us to shrink our waiting list down to nearly nothing. As always, we remain available on off-days in the San Jose main office, where appointments are available within 5 business days.
Connecting Families of Children With Inflammatory Bowel Disease
1/3 of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis cases start in childhood. A support group can help children meet other children with their condition and can provide families with a valuable network to share experiences, challenges, and solutions. To join, contact Viki Escobar, our office manager.
