Vicki's extensive experience in the field of Gastroenterology prepared her well for her position with Gastroenterology Associates of Fredericksburg, where she supports all of the physicians with the care and management of their patients.
Vicki has a particular interest in the treatment of liver disease and works closely with Dr. Narayan Dharel in the management of patients with Hepatitis C and other diseases of the liver. Vicki helps to facilitate the care of patients requiring routine screening colonoscopies by providing their pre-procedure evaluations as needed.
