Anastasia C. Waechter

Philosophy of Care

I enjoy gastroenterology because it is a diverse speciality that encompasses a variety of illnesses and also has an pivotal role in the prevention of diseases like colon cancer.  

Furthermore, I get the chance to help patients in the acute hospital setting as well as follow patients with chronic gastrointestinal illnesses over the long term.  

In my practice, I focus on obtaining a thorough clinical history and educating patients about the known pathophysiology and available treatments for their illnesses.  

I view my relationship with my patients as a partnership with the goal of empowering my patients to take an active role in their own care through effective education and communication in order to obtain the best possible clinical outcomes.
