What made you decide to become a gastroenterologist?
During my residency, endoscopic intervention enjoyed advancements and visibility as an alternative to surgical intervention. Visual sophistication makes this discipline easy and fun to teach. The presence of 4 distinct GI organs and the common distribution of digestive problems allows for swift changes of focus, should one become bored.
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
Milton Schlesinger, who made laboratory experiments fun and grounded while rigorous.
What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
Economics are at the basis of every human interaction.
What is the biggest mistake that you have made?
Thinking that my father would live forever.
What is your unfulfilled ambition?
Learning how to fly an airplane.
What is your greatest regret?
I live too far away from my mother who is growing old.
How do you relax?
Watching nature in all forms, i.e. birds in the backyard or documentaries and taking exotic trips.
What is your favorite sport?
Hiking.
What is your best place in the world?
The Italian Dolomites.
What is your favorite film?
Peter Sellers’ “Being there”.
What car do you drive?
Whatever I have available.
What is your best electronic 'toy'?
My electronic wine cellar.
What book are you reading at the moment?
“The Name of the Rose”, again.
