JACKSON - West Tennessee Healthcare recently welcomed Veronica Jarido, MD, gastroenterologist, to West Tennessee and her new medical practice at West Tennessee Gastroenterology. She is accepting new patients at his office at 27 Medical Center Drive, Jackson.
Jarido is experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of digestive health conditions. She specializes in therapeutic endoscopy, gastrointestinal wellness and nutrition, and the treatment of autoimmune digestive disorders including celiac disease. She performs minimally invasive procedures exclusively at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital.
Jarido earned her medical degree from University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburg, PA. She completed her residency in internal medicine at Duke Univeristy. She also completed fellowship training in gastroenterology at The Ohio State University.
She also specializes in minimally invasive procedures that use endoscopes equipped with tiny video cameras to visualize the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract.
