    Philosophy of Care

    Dr. Auld is from the Washington DC area and attended Johns Hopkins University and Medical School in Baltimore. He completed his internal medicine training at UC San Diego, and then spent 2 years working with the Navajo Indians in Shiprock, NM. He was the Clinical Director of the Indian Health Service Hospital and was awarded a Public Health Service Citation for his service. It was during this period that he was first exposed to nontraditional medicine, which prompted a lifelong interest. His gastroenterology fellowship training was spent at Scripps Clinic and Research Foundation in La Jolla, CA. His thesis was on the relationship between stomach cancer and uranium exposure in Navajos, which was presented at the 1987 World GI Conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil thanks to an award from the Henry Bockus Foundation.

    Dr. Auld started a solo practice in 1988, adding two partners before merging practices with Santa Rosa Gastroenterology to form Digestive Health Consultants. He has an interest in therapies beyond the typical allopathic, such as herbal treatments and has worked with many of the alternative and integrative health providers in Sonoma County.

    Inflammatory bowel diseases have been an interest of his for many years. He has been a member of the physician advisory board (CMAC) for the SF Bay Area Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) since 2004.
    He finds gastroenterology to be a fascinating combination of traditional consultative office practice and interesting endoscopic procedural practice. It is rare to find such a balance in medicine.
