FDHS adds gastroenterologist to Lakewood Ranch team

Florida Digestive Health Specialists is excited to welcome Dr. Ronald Andari to our team serving the Lakewood Ranch and Sarasota areas. Dr Andari is a board-certified Gastroenterologist with specialized training in advanced diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures. He will be practicing at Florida Digestive Disease Specialists.  

In 2010, after graduating in the top 10 percent in his doctoral medicine program at the Central University of Venezuela in Caracas, Dr. Andari moved to Philadelphia, PA. He completed his Internship and Residency in Internal Medicine at Temple University Hospital. Here, he was awarded with the “2013 Louis Tretin Memorial Award” for best-overall Internal Medicine physician trainee. Temple University Hospital was also where Dr. Andari completed his training in Gastroenterology and one additional year in Advanced Therapeutic Endoscopy.

His clinical interests include chronic abdominal pain, hepatobiliary and pancreatic pathology, endoscopic ultrasound, endoscopic mucosal resection and colorectal cancer prevention. He is currently accepting new patients and he is fluent in Spanish, English and Arabic. 

“It is the human connection, through compassion and reason that alleviates human suffering — that is what I love most of being a physician.”

When Dr. Andari isn’t caring for patients, he enjoys spending quality time with family, hiking, road-biking and swimming. He is also an avid practitioner of Ashtanga-Vinyasa yoga, as well as Pilates. Other interests include traveling, discovering new cultures and reading.
