Rawad Mounzer, MD, is a board-certified gastroenterologist and co-founder of Interventional Endoscopy Associates PLLC in Peoria, Scottsdale, and Phoenix, Arizona.

Dr. Mounzer received his medical degree from the American University of Beirut in Lebanon before moving to the United States in 2005 to pursue his dream of becoming a board-certified gastroenterologist. His journey began at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, where he completed a three-year postdoctoral research fellowship focusing on the role of inflammatory molecules in vascular development. He then completed his residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in gastroenterology and hepatology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

During his rigorous fellowship training at the University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Mounzer developed a deep passion and appreciation for high-level endoscopy.
