Dr. Thosani’s practice philosophy centers on providing personalized care tailored to each patient’s specific clinical problem. He takes time to explain the details of a procedure, allowing each patient to make an informed decision about care and to know what to expect. It is important to him for his patients to have both timely access to necessary procedures and  multidisciplinary care that is well coordinated. He uses the latest technology  to diagnose and treat certain types of gastrointestinal cancers and perform procedures endoscopically that were previously done surgically.   He treats patients 18 years and older and speaks Gujarati and Hindi.
