UCLA, Stanford Gastroenterologists Join CHOC
Anup Patel, M.D. & Jeffrey Ho, D.O.

Two fellowship-trained pediatric gastroenterologists with special interests in hepatology and eosinophil-associated gastrointestinal disorders have joined the CHOC Children’s medical staff. Jeffrey Ho, D.O., and Anup Patel, M.D., who trained at the University of California, Los Angeles and Stanford University, respectively, provide a full range of pediatric gastroenterology procedures.

Additionally, both physicians have extensive training in liver transplantation. During his fellowship at UCLA, Dr. Ho participated in research identifying the prevalence, risk factors and co-morbidities for obesity in pediatric liver transplant recipients. He is currently interested in bringing Video Capsule Endoscopy to CHOC.

Dr. Patel was a research fellow at the Stanford University Nadeau Lab and continues to have strong interests in eosinophilic esophagitis. During his fellowship, he received the university’s Transplant and Tissue Engineering Endowment and was the Alan M. Krensky Endowed Clinical Fellow.

Appointments are available at CHOC Children’s Hospital, CHOC Children’s at Mission Hospital and the CHOC Children’s Specialty Center at Hoag Health Center.
