The St.Joseph’s liver program was created to maintain a balance between prevention, early diagnosis, treatment, liver transplant evaluation and clinical trials. We take nothing for granted and go the extra distance to make sure our patients receive the absolute best care possible. Although we are a major teaching institution, we drill into our resident physicians, the concept that we treat our patients as if they were our own family, i.e. “if that were your mom, what would you do for her?”
