My name is Julie Yam, and I’m in
gastroenterology with Great Lakes Gastroenterology. I do general
gastroenterology including screening colonoscopies, and seeing patients with
liver disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and various abdominal issues. What
attracted me to join in Great Lakes Gastroenterology was the camaraderie
among the existing partners and the opportunities that I would have to grow a
practice here in the area. What I like about my specialty is the ability to do
both procedures and clinical practice as seeing patients throughout their
clinical disease and managing them from the beginning. The best part of my job is
seeing patients when they’re sick and seeing them a few weeks later after they
feel better and back to their regular lives. What I would like for my patients
to remember me for is just being a caring doctor and someone that they
could rely on.
