My name is Nakechand Pooran, MD, and I am an associate professor of medicine and the gastroenterology section chief at the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center. I earned my medical degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine in Grenada, West Indies. My postgraduate training was completed at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, New York, where subsequently, I was an attending physician in the division of gastroenterology and a clinical instructor of medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
