Meet Dr. Neeraj Mangla
Dr. Neeraj Mangla was raised in Corpus Christi, TX, prior to receiving a bachelor’s degree in biology and a master’s degree in health care administration at Union College. He graduated from Albany Medical College and completed his residency at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in New York City. He worked as a hospitalist in San Diego before completing a fellowship at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital.
Dr. Mangla pursued GI due to its hands-on nature and a wide variety of pathology. He has a particular interest in inflammatory bowel disease, hepatology, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and esophageal motility. He complimented those interests by completing the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation Fellow program with Cedars-Sinai, working with the University of California San Diego NAFLD Translational Research Unit, and finishing the American Neurogastroenterology & Motility Society Clinical Training Program.
Patients lead busy, demanding lifestyles! Dr. Mangla believes in creating an evaluation or treatment pathway that best fits his patients’ needs. They should expect to take an active role in a visit that will be collaborative in nature. Dr. Mangla takes pride in communicating those answers effectively and helping patients understand the big-picture implications behind their conditions.
A few things Dr. Mangla enjoys outside of medicine include staying active (no long runs though, thank you!), film (known to quote from movies), cheering on his favorite sports teams (Go Spurs Go!), finding the best local food, and exploring Austin.
