Robert S. Bartolomeo, MD

“During medical school and internal medicine residency, I developed a strong interest in gastroenterology because of the multiple organ systems involved, its complexity and the way it relates to nutrition and health. It also gives me the opportunity to interact on a very personal level with patients, get involved with their lives and help them improve their overall health. My patients trust me because they know I put their needs first. I listen to them, truly hear and understand their symptoms, fears and concerns. Most of all, I support them through their illness.”

Perry C. Gould, MD

“I had a close family member who suffered from inflammatory bowel disease. That resulted in my interest in the field of gastroenterology. I am fascinated by the advancements in technology that has now progressed to the point where we can directly inspect every previously hidden part of the human digestive system. I enjoy this process of detection utilizing endoscopy. I am also a good listener, open-minded and very flexible in working with patients. I never give up on a patient.”

Felice J. Mirsky, MD

“Gastroenterology allows me to combine my interests in long-term and short-term patient care relationships, preventive medicine, performing procedures and conducting clinical research. Treating patients with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are the diseases in this field that I find most compelling. Each patient is unique and a challenge. I try to know my patients as individuals, and this allows me the ability to understand their symptoms more clearly. When patients feel reassured that someone is listening to their complaints and taking them seriously, they feel validated and protected. I most enjoy being able to positively contribute to a patient’s health. I love when they feel better based upon care that I have provided.”

Chaim Ross, MD

“Gastroenterology has the perfect mix of medicine and endoscopic procedures and a large variety of pathologies. Every day is different. I enjoy having the ability to diagnose pathology under direct visualization, during an endoscopic procedure, and the ability to heal by endoscopy. I hope to be able to form strong bonds with my patients and to earn their trust by building their confidence in my clinical and endoscopic skills. My best quality is my ability to communicate well with each of my patients.”

Jennifer K. Slane, DO

“Practicing gastroenterology can make a tremendous impact in a patient’s life – which is why I love this field. It allows the best of both worlds- a fusion of traditional medicine which includes listening, examining and counseling my patients – together with that of a more technological approach utilizing endoscopy to better diagnose, prevent and treat gastrointestinal disease. This challenging field is growing and we are learning more each day with new tools to help our patients. I believe educating my patients about their health is paramount. I am a careful listener and detail oriented which helps me to arrive at an accurate diagnosis and tailor the treatment to the individual. I strive to provide the best, most compassionate care possible for my patients.”
