Peter H. R. Green, M.D./Columbia University

Dr. Peter Green is the director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University as well as the Phyllis and Ivan Seidenberg Professor of Clinical Medicine at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University and an attending physician at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

Peter received his medical degree from University of Sydney, Australia. After completing his residency and GI fellowship in Sydney he became a research fellow at Harvard Medical School and in the Gastroenterology Department at the Beth Israel Hospital in Boston.

He is a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians and the American College of Gastroenterology as well as a member of the American Gastroenterologic Association and American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.

Celiac disease has been Peter’s focus over the last 10 years with equal concentration on patient care and research. He is one of the few physicians in the United States with an intense clinical and academic interest and expertise in celiac disease. As a result of the need for a coordinated approach for the medical care of patients with celiac disease, Peter established the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University. He is the author of the book Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic.
