Dr. Christopher A. Barbarevech
Partner at Gastrointestinal Consultants of Northeastern Pennsylvania in Scranton, PA

Dr. Barbarevech completed medical school, internship, residency and gastroenterology training at Jefferson, where he was the Alfred W. Dubbs Fellow in gastroenterology. While at Jefferson, Dr. Barbarevech earned the House Staff Award for Excellence in Teaching. Dr. Barbarevech is a Diplomat of the American Board of Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology/Hepatology.

Gastroenterology training at Jefferson is a multilevel clinical education that can’t be beat. My decision to donate and support fellowship training has a lot to do with the camaraderie I experienced and continue to experience among Jefferson gastroenterologists and physicians. I spent the best 10 years of my life at Jefferson; I married my wife during my medical internship and both of my children were born at Jefferson during my fellowship. Everything I have now–excellent clinical training, a successful GI practice, and a loving and supportive family–I really owe to my time at Jefferson. And after all this, Jefferson still continues to give back to me and my family. It is my tertiary hospital of choice.
