  • Born in the United Kingdom, Noel Curry, MD, knew early in life that a career in medicine was his future. At age twelve, while playing rugby Curry sustained a severely fractured leg and was hospitalized for nine months in orthopedic traction. “It was during that time, I observed what went on in a hospital — treatment and care — and decided that medicine interested me,” says Dr. Curry.

    Receiving his medical degree from Guys Hospital in London at age 24, Dr. Curry ventured west for an internship at Vancouver Hospital, completing his residency at Oregon Health and Science University Hospital. He then completed a fellowship in gastroenterology at ULCA School of Medicine, Wadsworth VA Hospital. Dr. Curry is Board Certified in Gastroenterology.

    “I first visited the Palm Springs area during my internship in Vancouver and returned here in 1974 after my residency and fellowship work. I’ve been here ever since,” says Curry. “I am fortunate to be licensed to practice medicine in three countries; the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada

    While contemplating a specialty, Dr. Curry decided on gastroenterology as a good mix of a specialty that was people-oriented and one where he could do procedures.  “I enjoy surgery as well as ongoing relationships with patients. Gastroenterology afforded both interests.”

    As a gastroenterologist, Dr. Curry specializes in the digestive system and related disorders affecting the gastrointestinal (or GI) tract.  Consultations occur in his office and procedures are done in two nearby locations.  Procedures performed include colonoscopies, endoscopies, capsule endoscopies and esophageal manometry.
