William B. Salt II, M.D.

William B. Salt II, MDWilliam 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."
