New gastroenterologist joins Sarasota location

Florida Digestive Health Specialists recently welcomed a new gastroenterologist to one of their Sarasota locations.

David Schwimmer, MD, received his medical degree from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and his internal medicine residency training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. He completed his gastroenterology fellowship at the University of Florida in Gainesville and will be practicing at Sarasota Digestive Health Specialists.

“I was attracted to the field of gastroenterology due to my personal experience with GI diseases,” said Schwimmer. “My goal is to care for my patients as if they are members of my own family.”

Dr. Schwimmer’s particular areas of interest are the diagnosis, care and treatment of IBD as well as immunological diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. During his medical training, Dr. Schwimmer participated in clinical research and community outreach programs. He has also been recognized for leading quality improvement projects that helped streamline communication and advance patient education.

When Dr. Schwimmer isn’t caring for patients, he and his wife enjoy Sarasota’s beautiful weather and its array of restaurants and activities.
