Personal Information

Dr. Andari is a board-certified Gastroenterologist with specialized training in advanced diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures. His clinical interests include chronic abdominal pain, hepatobiliary and pancreatic pathology, endoscopic ultrasound, endoscopic mucosal resection and cancer prevention. When not helping patients, Dr. Andari enjoys spending quality time with family, hiking, road-biking, swimming and exploring new places.

He is currently accepting new patients and he is fluent in Spanish, English and Arabic. 

“I enjoy connecting with each patient and creating individualized treatment plans to help them lead a healthy, active life. In our practice, patients have access to highly advanced therapies and care without the need to visit a large hospital system or an academic medical center. We find that the outpatient setting allows for more coordinated, streamlined care that is convenient for the patient and their family members. The doctor-patient relationship also thrives. Personally, I find that this human connection, through compassion and alleviating human suffering, is what I love most of being a physician.”
