Specialty Care for Children’s Digestive Health

As a pediatric gastroenterologist, Dr. Cole has extensive training in both children’s health and digestive health. She works with children and young adults – from newborns to 21 years old – who have a wide variety of digestive disorders, including:

“The best part of my work is developing relationships with my patients and their families and being able to watch them grow up and get better,” says Dr. Cole. “An important part of developing that relationship is really listening to them so that they feel like their concerns have been heard. It’s also very important that I take time to help them understand the diagnosis and treatment options available to them.”

Active Lifestyle

In her free time, Dr. Cole likes to spend time with her children and enjoys being outside, swimming, Pilates and yoga.
