Aaron Dickstein, MD was born and raised in New York’s Hudson Valley. He moved to the Boston area as an undergraduate at Brandeis University, where he obtained his Bachelor of Science in Biology. He then began his medical training at Tufts University School of Medicine, graduating in 2009. Dr. Dickstein completed his internal medicine residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut and later worked as an attending physician within the division of medicine of Yale-New Haven hospital. He returned to Boston to complete a clinical fellowship in gastroenterology at Tufts Medical Center. He now joins the Division of Gastroenterology.
In addition to general gastroenterology, Dr. Dickstein is particularly interested in GI motility and anorectal disorders. He completed a specialized clinical training program in the field as part of his fellowship through the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society. In his practice, he employs some of the latest technologies, including video capsule endoscopy for obscure GI bleeding, SmartPill for measuring whole gut transit, and fecal microbiota transplantation for recurrent c. difficile infection.
Dr. Dickstein enjoys competitive athletics, hiking, snowshoeing and acoustic guitar.
