Overview of Dr. Vashi

Two years after joining Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in 1992, now City of Hope - Chicago. I started the first nutrition and metabolic support program at our Chicago hospital in Zion, Illinois. As a gastroenterologist, I offer patients minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat gastrointestinal tumors and help reduce cancer-related symptoms. I have special interest in Oncologic Nutrition and Cryotherapy for Esophageal cancers.
