New Physician Joins Associates in Gastroenterology

Associates in Gastroenterology welcomes Ann Marie Stephenson, DO, MBA. Board-certified in Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine, Dr. Stephenson’s practice will focus on general gastrointestinal health with a special interest in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD).

“As a gastroenterologist with experience in osteopathic medicine, Dr. Stephenson brings a unique and valuable perspective to patient treatment,” said Dr. Arnold Levy, president and CEO of Capital Digestive Care. “A history of caring for her community and commitment to her patients make Dr. Stephenson a great fit for our group.”

Aspiring to be a doctor since she was 10, Dr. Stephenson volunteered more than 1,000 hours as a candy striper in her teenage years. After receiving a bachelor’s in psychology at Spelman College in Atlanta, Dr. Stephenson earned a doctor of osteopathy degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, while also completing a master’s in business administration from Saint Joseph’s University. Following an internal medicine residency, Dr. Stephenson completed fellowships in both geriatric medicine and gastroenterology, from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and Midwestern University, respectively.
