Getting to know Dr. Dietle

I first learned to love GI when caring for children with biliary atresia and short bowel syndrome during my acting internship as a medical student. I love the continuity and relationships with the patients as well as the opportunity to work inpatient, outpatient, and on procedures. I also love working with students and residents and sharing my love for GI. After graduation I plan to stay at UNMC and complete a Hepatology Fellowship.

Getting to know Dr. Miri

My interest in Pediatric Gastroenterology came from my passion in hands-on procedures and  managing various gastrointestinal diseases. Pediatric GI is very dynamic because it has the perfect mix of different health care sittings  including  inpatient, outpatient, procedure, medical education and research so the risk of developing routine in future medical career is less likely.  My individual interests including Intestinal failure, Eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders, IBD as well as medical education. In my spare time, I enjoy having fun with my wife and kids, reading, cooking and traveling.
