Dr. Jennifer Duong is a pediatric gastroenterologist. She is dedicated to providing high-quality, comprehensive and collaborative care to patients with digestive system diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), pancreatic disorders, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), celiac disease, eosinophilic disorders (conditions resulting from overproduction of eosinophils, a type of immune cell) and constipation.
