Psychiatry, Consult Liaison / Eating Disorders

What are you passionate about at work? I am passionate about excellent patient care and collaborative team work. I have been working at St. Paul’s Hospital for 9 years and over this time I have been increasingly interested in working on professional collaborations, partnerships and relationships not only within psychiatry, but also within the larger hospital network. I see the direct benefit of improved connection and communication in facilitating consistent and improved patient care.

 

Dr. Sarvee Mosavi- Member at Large

Gastroenterology

What are you passionate about at work? I mainly work at MSJ, with motility practice at SPH. I established and currently supervise the esophageal motility lab, with my sub-specialty area in neurogastroenterology and GI motility. This is an area close to my heart. I also really enjoy working with colleagues in other areas to advance patients access to such overlooked areas.
I also greatly enjoy teaching medical students and residents. I want to see further involvement of GI fellows in GI motility.
