As someone who believes strongly in access to exceptional gastrointestinal care, Dr. Dibba is mindful of the individual needs of each patient, irrespective of their level of health, socioeconomic status, gender identity, and cultural or religious background. She understands that gastrointestinal procedures, including upper endoscopies and colonoscopies, may seem overwhelming for some patients, and places high priority on fostering feelings of comfort, confidence, privacy, and security. Dr. Dibba values the opportunity to connect personally with patients and work with them through their clinical conditions, not only in the initial diagnosis of their gastrointestinal issues, but also in the comprehensive treatment and follow up of their conditions over time.
When not working with her patients, Dr. Dibba enjoys staying physically active, exploring NYC, and spending time with her family and friends.
