(Boston) - Newton resident M. Michael Wolfe, MD, chief of the Gastroenterology Section at Boston Medical Center, professor of medicine and research professor of physiology and biophysics at Boston University School of Medicine, was recently named one of America's Top Doctors by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd.

The America's Top Doctors guide, recognized by consumers seeking high-quality medical care, is a trusted and authoritative resource for identifying top doctors in the United States. The selected top doctors are nominated by hospital presidents, vice presidents of medical affairs, and chiefs of service in anesthesiology, obstetrics and gynecology, medicine, emergency medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry, radiology and surgery; as well as randomly selected board-certified physicians.

Prior to coming to Boston University Medical Center in 1996, Wolfe served as staff physician in medicine (gastroenterology) at the Brigham and Women's Hospital. He received his medical degree from Ohio State University College of Medicine and performed his internship and residency at the Hospital of the Medical College of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, where he served as chief medical resident.

In addition to his recognition in the overall field of gastroenterology, Wolfe has achieved significant recognition for his expertise in acid-related disorders and specifically GERD and NSAID-associated gastroduodenal ulcers and in the diagnosis and management of gastrinoma and other neuroendocrine tumors.

He is a fellow of the American College of Physicians and American College of Gastroenterology and was formerly chair of the Constitution and By-Laws Committee, a member of the Research Committee and Training and Education Committee, and chair of the GERD Awareness Program (GAP) of the American Gastroenterological Association. In addition to his numerous and significant contributions to the gastroenterological literature, he serves on the editorial boards of The American Journal of Physiology, Digestive Diseases and Sciences and Regulatory Peptides. He served as chair of the Advisory Board for Gastrointestinal Drugs at the FDA from July 2001 until June 2003.

Wolfe has served as editor of several clinical medicine textbooks, including his role as editor-in-chief of Therapy of Digestive Disorders and co-author of Heartburn: Extinguishing the Fire Inside.
