Eric Nordstrom, MD
Dr. Nordstrom earned a bachelor of arts in biology and ecology from Macalester College before completing his doctor of medicine at Saint Louis University in 2010. He completed a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in gastroenterology and hepatology, spending a year as the chief fellow, at the University of Colorado.
Dr. Nordstrom decided to pursue a career in medicine after spending an undergraduate summer living on a nature reserve studying grassland bird communities. While he enjoyed the scientific process, he wanted a career where he could work with and help people directly. Medicine offered him the unique opportunity to continue a scientific career while developing profound relationships with a wide variety of people.
Once in medical school, Dr. Nordstrom started making a difference immediately. He co-founded a group connecting patients in underserved communities with local eye health resources, and spent a summer working at an eye hospital in India. This led him graduate with a distinction in community service.
Dr. Nordstrom enjoys all elements of gastroenterology, but is particularly interested in inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease management, and colorectal cancer prevention. He believes that a compassionate, patient-centered, team-based approach delivers the highest quality patient care.
Dr. Nordstrom is married and enjoys spending his free time fly-fishing, snowboarding, running, hiking, camping, backpacking, and biking. He’s a former college soccer player and enjoys watching all soccer and Green Bay Packers football.
