BATAVIA – Western New York Pediatric Gastroenterology (WNYPG) has announced the opening of its practice at 166 Washington Ave. in Batavia.

The group of physicians will focus on patients from infancy to 29 years old with gastrointestinal, liver and nutritional disorders. WNYPG chose to open the office in Batavia to accommodate patients throughout the region.

During a time in which the number of children with autoimmune disorders like Celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease is growing in Western New York, WNYPG aims to accept patients without long wait times. The group commits to see patients within 48 hours.

Dr. Daniel Gelfond and Dr. Humaira Hashmi lead the practice. Gelfond, who focuses a significant portion of his practice on Celiac disease, is a medical adviser for the WNY Gluten Free Diet Support Group. Hashmi, who focuses on inflammatory bowel disease and childhood obesity, helps families educate and manage their children’s nutrition.
