Dr. Adam Ehrlich is our 2023 Take Step Honored GI - Read his Bio here.

Dr. Adam Ehrlich is the Co-Director of the Temple Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center at Temple University Hospital. He also directs the Temple Gastroenterology Fellowship Program and where he is responsible for the training of our future gastroenterologists. He was inspired to pursue a career in treating patients with inflammatory bowel disease after experiences with several close family members and friends as well as after his training at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York (where Burrill Crohn worked in the early 20th century).

Dr. Ehrlich has been involved in the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation at all levels. He serves as a member of the National Scientific Advisory Committee’s Professional Membership subcommittee, the Regional Education Committee, and is a co-chair for the Delaware Valley Healthcare Professional Engagement Committee. He has also spoken at professional meetings to other providers and at local support groups and patient education days.  Dr. Ehrlich has also been involved with Philadelphia Take Steps for the past 10 years and appreciates that Take Steps is a day that patients, caregivers, supporters, and healthcare professionals can all share together.

Dr. Ehrlich’s approach to an IBD patient is one of shared knowledge and decision-making. With the expansion of new therapies, he feels it is vital to include the patient in the process of deciding the right treatment plan and that an individualized approach strengthens the physician-patient relationship.

Outside of work, Dr. Ehrlich is a proud husband and father of 3 girls as well as a passionate Philadelphia sports fan.
