    Dr. Priya Kathpalia is a gastroenterologist with a special interest in esophageal and other gastrointestinal motility disorders—digestive conditions related to the passage of food and secretions. She is also trained in performing upper endoscopies, colonoscopies, esophageal manometry, pH, and SmartPill studies.

    Prior to concentrating on motility disorders, Kathpalia's research focused on inflammatory bowel disease and liver diseases.

    After earning her medical degree at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, Kathpalia completed a residency in internal medicine at Loyola University Medical Center, where she also served as chief resident. Kathpalia then completed a fellowship in gastroenterology at UCSF, where she trained with international experts in esophagology.

    Kathpalia belongs to the American College of Gastroenterology, American Gastroenterological Association, American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and Northern California Society for Clinical Gastroenterology. She is an assistant professor of medicine at UCSF and also serves as an associate program director for the GI fellowship program.
