Philosophy of Care

I have always felt a holistic and integrated approach to medical care is essential and as I have grown into the specialty of gastrointestinal illnesses this sentiment has only grown stronger. The often times confusing and troubling symptomatology requires a practitioner who will listen to the patient, integrate and accumulate data to support or rule out disease processes, and ultimately communicate this with the patient in a way they understand. I have dedicated my life and practice to this pursuit and look forward to working with you.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Tagore is an experienced Gastroenterology with over 15 years in the specialty and caring for patients with various gastrointestinal conditions such as reflux disease, inflammatory bowel disease, motility and functional disease. He has special clinical interest in the fields of Crohn's disease and Ulcerative colitis, colon cancer screening and surveillance, and GERD.

Research/Academic Interests

Dr. Tagore's research focuses on colon cancer screening modalities and quality improvement in endoscopy. He also has an interest in gastrointestinal motility and Inflammatory Bowel disease.
