Medical Director's Corner with Dr. Tarun Kothari

Hello friends,

Twenty-three years ago, I started writing articles to give updates to my fellow colleagues under the banner “JUST SO YOU KNOW.” Today, I am also writing as a blogger at gutchek.com. It contains common digestive disease-related pearls for the benefit of patients. Also, I periodically post articles of medical and non-medical interest from other sources as well.
