She also cares for patients with inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, and will offer colorectal cancer screening.
Dr. Marsicano added she is a passionate advocate of women’s health. “There are often special considerations that should be taken into account with my female patients,” she said. “I often work closely with OB/GYNs, urologists, and urogynecologists to ensure we are providing effective multidisciplinary care. I want to help women realize there is hope and evaluate all possible causes of their distress.”
Dr. Marsicano attended the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, where she also completed her residency training. She then moved to St. Louis and completed a Fellowship in Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Saint Louis University School of Medicine. Dr. Marsicano is board certified in Gastroenterology.
