My name is Fernando Zapata. I’m a pediatric gastroenterologist at Children’s.
The family can trust me because of my experience and practice working with families and patients to improve outcomes, meaning we help patients to outgrow the problems they have.
I have been working for a long time with kids who have failure to grow, need to catch up with their weight, don’t eat enough, or have issues with swallowing. I try to define the primary factors for these problems. I also work with patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
As we continue to grow our practice and experience, and gather updated information from meetings, we are able to guide these patients towards better control of these diseases.
Cases that appear to be simple for us — but for these families are not simple — are conditions like chronic reflux.
We get a good portion of consultation referrals for constipation, as well. Referrals help us improve life for patients with stool issues. Most patients can improve with guidance.
