Rayna Grothe MD is a clinical pediatric gastroenterologist who practices out of the MUSC Children's Health Specialty Clinic in Okatie, SC.

Dr. Grothe's areas of expertise include general pediatric gastroenterology, feeding and nutritional disorders, aerodigestive disease, eosinophilic esophagitis, inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease and the GI care of children with special health care needs.

She is experienced in developing pediatric GI programs, initially in the US Air Force and then at Raymond Blank Children's Hospital in Des Moines, Iowa. Prior to coming to MUSC, she was on faculty at Mayo Clinic Pediatric GI, where she was division chair for 8 years.

As a current member of the North American Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition child advocacy team, she is participating on the national level to promote awareness of the unique issues a pediatric patient with gastrointestinal disease faces. She is excited and honored to join the community-based pediatric GI practice at MUSC and looks forward to serving the patients and community.
