About Gary H. Silber, MD

Gary Silber, MD, is a pediatric gastroenterologist who views patient care as a partnership between the patient, their family and the physician. He values interactions with patients and families, as well as opportunities to collaborate with other providers in his division to help patients get back to a healthy, active lifestyle.

"This team of advocates needs to work together to find a solution to the problem," says Dr. Silber, who specializes in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), short bowel syndrome and celiac disease.

Inspired by his own pediatrician to pursue a career in medicine, Dr. Silber decided to specialize in pediatrics during his first year of residency training at Connecticut Children's, where he worked under Gastroenterology Division chief Jeffrey Hyams, MD.

"My interest developed during this time as I worked with patients with IBD alongside Dr. Hyams," he says.
