Your First Visit

Information for your first visit to the Center for GI Health

Important Information

What you should know

The Center for GI Health sees a limited number of patients per day, so that Dr. Nowain can spend more time with each patient. We do, however, accept new patients. If it is your first time visiting us, send over as much information as possible to help Dr. Nowain get up to speed on your medical history by fax or email. If you are seeking a second opinion for a chronic, reoccurring condition, it is helpful to send the information regarding when your symptoms started, how your symptoms have changed over time and other information about you. If your symptoms are new, try to describe them in detail so that he can make a more accurate diagnosis. You can fax information to: 310.742.0444 or email at
