Medical Director's Corner:

Tarun Kothari, MD, FACG, FACP

Hello friends,

Twenty-three years ago, I started writing articles to give updates to my fellow colleagues under the banner “JUST SO YOU KNOW.” As a past president of Unity Hospital medical and dental staff, these articles were hugely popular and have become my tradition ever since. Once I had set up our practice website in late 90s, articles were then posted under and were enjoyed by patients and physicians alike.

Now as a retired Gastroenterologist, I am beginning a new chapter as a blogger. Going forward, will contain pearls of wisdom about gut health and common digestive diseases. Also, will periodically post articles of medical and non-medical interest from other sources as well. I will offer surveys time to time.

Check your gut at!
