Video Transcript


Hello and, welcome. Thank you so much for joining me for this video. I’m really happy you’ve taken some time out of your busy schedule to watch this video. And in this video, we will be talking about Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome Diagnosis and Management, An Algorithmic Approach.

My name is Dr. Kashif Piracha. I’m going to be your host for this video. I’m a double Board Certified Physician and also a Hypertension Specialist. I have 16 years of clinical experience taking care of patients in the clinical setting.

And the reason I’ve created this video is because I want to share with you an approach that I would take if I encounter a patient with symptoms concerning for ZE Syndrome. Also, this same approach could help me if I’m taking a test and I see that there’s a question about ZE syndrome. I can use this approach to try to get to the right answer. So let’s go ahead and get started.
