We take pride in getting to know our patients and understanding their individual needs and concerns. We value our patients’ time and work to maximize efficiencies, streamlining the scheduling process and minimizing the discomfort that so often accompanies digestive disorders. We strive to effectively and expeditiously improve your quality of life and restore your digestive system to its ideal health.
This “Patient-First” philosophy guides our policies and inspires our staff. It also differentiates us from other digestive health practices. So does our unique relationship with Long Island Center for Digestive Health (LICDH)—a distinguished outpatient facility, located in the same building as our main headquarters, where we perform a broad range of advanced diagnostic testing and procedures including upper endoscopy and colonoscopy, among others.
This collaboration enables Gastroenterology Associates to guarantee patients an extraordinary digestive health experience defined by comfort, convenience, and exceptional personalized care.
Patients are diagnosed and treated in a friendly and welcoming environment much more comfortable than a traditional hospital. Since both Gastroenterology Associates and Long Island Center for Digestive Health are under the same roof, the scheduling process is smoother, with no chance of unforeseen waits or conflicts. Both share the same doctors and support staff, so whether patients are attending regular office visits or advanced procedures, they’ll see the same familiar faces—which gives patients invaluable peace of mind, too.
The doctors at Gastroenterology Associates and Long Island Center for Digestive Health are friendly, caring and attentive, often personally greeting patients in the waiting room on scheduled appointments (uncommon among most healthcare providers), and regularly receiving feedback appreciative of their warm demeanor.
Long-term relationships are often forged between doctors and patients, since much of our staff have been working here for many years, and thus, share a special familiarity with each other. This helps returning patients feel more comfortable and at ease—a big plus when dealing with the uncomfortable and oftentimes embarrassing nature of digestive disorders.
As an example of our personal touch, LICDH staff even supply post-procedure coffee and cookies.
All this and more helps set Gastroenterology Associates apart from the rest.
