Rozina Mithani, M.D., is an Associate Professor in the Department of Internal Medicine at UT Southwestern Medical Center, and a member of the Division of Digestive and Liver Diseases. She also serves as Associate Program Director of the Gastroenterology Fellowship Program. 

Anybody can hand out pills and treat a disease, but I think it's really understanding how it impacts a patient's life that is important.

Originally from Canada, Dr. Mithani holds a bachelor's degree in molecular genetics from the University of Rochester in New York. She received her medical degree from the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio and completed her internal medicine residency training at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago, where she served as Chief Resident, followed by advanced training through a fellowship in gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition.

Certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in gastroenterology, Dr. Mithani joined the faculty in 2012.

Dr. Mithani's clinical interests include general gastrointestinal issues, such as irritable bowel syndrome and gastroesophageal reflux disease, as well as less common and more complex problems of the GI tract, such as Barrett's esophagus.

Dr. Mithani is an active member of the American College of Gastroenterology and is a member of its Training Committee.

Personal Note

During her free time, Dr. Mithani enjoys spending time with her family and traveling.
