Dr. Ali Husain is a board-certified physician who joined Frederick Gastroenterology Associates in 2015 after practicing for 9 years in a multispecialty clinic in Iowa. His professional interests include colon cancer screening, GERD, swallowing difficulties, inflammatory bowel disease, and liver disease.

Dr. Husain earned his bachelor’s degree in microbiology from the University of Iowa. He then studied physiological sciences to earn a BA/MA at Balliol College at Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar. He earned his medical degree at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. He completed his internship and residency at Stanford University and returned to his alma mater for GI fellowship at the University of Iowa.

I have been fortunate to practice in a field that satisfies all aspects of what it means to be a physician. I love getting to know my patients over the long term, solving diagnostic dilemmas, and offering therapeutic interventions that positively impact their lives. I enjoy all aspects of gastrointestinal care—from emergent cases such as stopping severe bleeding to longitudinal care for my inflammatory bowel disease and liver disease patients. Compassionate communication is my goal for all my patients.

Dr. Husain enjoys traveling and exploring gastronomical adventures everywhere. He loves spending time with his wife and two children especially if it involves drinking coffee.
