|William B. Salt II,
B. Salt II, MD is board-certified in both internal medicine and gastroenterology.
He received his MD degree from The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio
in 1972 where he currently holds an appointment as a Clinical Associate
Professor in Medicine. He trained for 5 more years in internal medicine
and gastroenterology at Vanderbilt University Hospitals in Nashville, Tennessee,
where he also served as a Chief Resident in Medicine.
Dr. Salt practices with the Ohio Gastroenterology
Group in Columbus, Ohio. He has spent 20 years caring for patients with
digestive and liver diseases and has a special interest in Irritable Bowel
Syndrome and other functional GI disorders. His primary hospital is Mt.
Carmel Health, which is a teaching hospital and affiliate of The Ohio State
University and where he serves as a chairman of the Continuing Medical
Education Committee and as the Educational Director in Gastroenterology.
He is actively involved in teaching medical students and residents in medicine,
family practice, surgery, and obstetrics and gynecology.
His students at Mt. Carmel Health have honored
him as "Teacher of the Year in Medicine, 1978-1979," and as the
first recipient of "Family Practice Residency Teacher of the Year
1995-1996 (by a non-family practice physician)". His peers have done
so by including him in the first edition of The Best Doctors in America
®: Midwest Region (1996-1997), which contains the names of just 2.9%
of physicians practicing in the Midwestern United States.
The author of 12 articles in medical journals
and one chapter in a book for physicians, Dr. Salt spent 2 years writing
Irritable Bowel Syndrome and the Mind-Body/Brain-Gut Connection. He says,
"I could not find an inclusive resource for my patients with IBS and
other functional GI disorders. I was disappointed that I could not spend
more time in providing them with all of the information, knowledge, and
options I had learned over the years. Finally, I became convinced that
it was necessary to manage these digestive disorders through a plan for
general health and wellness. We must all attend to mind, body and spirit
in order to heal."
