Our IBD Team and Care Locations

Our IBD Team and Care Locations

The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center's multidisciplinary team includes experts in adult and pediatric gastroenterology, surgery, pathology, radiology, nutrition and other disciplines. We also have a team of physician assistants who specialize in surgical care as well as ostomy and wound management. In addition, David T. Rubin, MD, and Russell Cohen, MD, each work with an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) in the outpatient setting. The APN manages and treats inflammatory bowel disease in collaboration with the physicians. The APNs see established patients independently in the clinic setting and are able to order necessary lab work or diagnostic testing and order prescription medications. To schedule an appointment with an APN, please call (773) 702-6140.
