Personal Information

Dr. Arun Khazanchi is board certified in gastroenterology, internal medicine and hepatology. A nationally acclaimed gastroenterologist, Dr. Khazanchi treats digestive health disorders including Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative Colitis, esophageal and swallowing ailments, irritable bowel syndrome and more. He is one of a small group of physicians who perform endoscopic ultrasounds for cancers and biopsies of the rectum, lungs, pancreas and esophagus.

“My patients and team members are an extension of my family, and family is extremely important to me,” said Dr. Khazanchi. “I created a friendly, warm environment at both of my offices (in Lakewood Ranch and at Doctors Hospital) so our patients feel comfortable and welcome. We take time with each one of our patients to ensure that we understand their situation, symptoms and medical history and can create an entirely individualized treatment plan for them.”
When Dr. Khazanchi isn’t caring for patients, he spends time with his wife and daughter.
