North Shore Gastro is the best group of its kind in New York (perhaps anywhere). Dr. David Milkes possesses the rare combination of exceptional bedside manner and medical skill that is both broad and deep; there is extraordinary experience combined with cutting-edge, current insight that stays abreast with most recent advances in the field. I am treated like a person, not a number. Empathy and excellent technical expertise create trust. This is the best place to go for all things gastro.

Dr. Abittan has been my Gastroenterologist for several years. He is wonderful. He is kind, gentle, caring, knowledgeable. Dr. Abittan is available. When called, he always returns your call in a timely manner. He answers all questions and explains the circumstances very well. One of the most important qualities of a physician is bedside manner. Dr. Abittan is exceptional. And he always puts you at ease and you leave feeling good. Any patient he treats will have great confidence in him. I would recommend him to anyone, without reservation, and consider myself lucky to be one of his patients.

This has been my second colonoscopy with Dr. Rattner. Both Dr. Rattner and his staff, from the personnel at the front desk to the medical personnel inside, were the absolute best. I would like to commend Dr. White too. I’ll be back in 7 years for a repeat. Please assure these professionals will still be there.

Dr Rattner is Among one of the best drs I’ve seen in the last 5-6 years. Answers any questions you may have, doesn’t rush you out the door, and seems Genuinely concerned about your health!

The staff is excellent at making you feel welcome, and comfortable. I’ve had 3 procedures done at the office in the last few years.

Dr. Rattner has a very reassuring demeanor! He is articulate, professional and knowledgeable. Regrettably, our relationship will be discontinued, when I relocate to Virginia in August. He can’t be replaced!

I’ve been to several GI doctors over the past six years and I am incredibly impressed with Dr. Abittan. He strongly demonstrated his understanding of the issues that past doctors somehow missed. He really listens to every detail. His referral to a doctor who specializes in my motility condition was spot on. I am very hopeful.

Moving away from the medical facilities and doctors I was familiar with in N.Y. disappointed me and when I was faced with a problem and unsatisfied with my local physician, I decided to contact Dr. Abittan. His office staff was very accommodating and I scheduled an appointment and procedure for the time when I would be in N.Y. This occurred and when I explained my dilemma to Dr. Abittan, he reassured me that I could call him at any time. Over the years, my husband, family and I have been very pleased with the caring and professional nature that Dr. Abittan and his staff exhibit to all his patients.

After a great recommendation from my dad, who has been seeing him for years, I met with Dr. Talansky for the first time. Dr. Talanky really set my mind at ease and answers all my questions. He really listened to my concerns and symptoms and provided me with very clear explanations and suggestions based on all his experience and expertise. He was extremely easy to talk to. I came to him for a second opinion after not being so comfortable with another doctor I was seeing. I would definitely recommend Dr. Talansky and plan on making him my regular Gastro doctor.

I would like to say that my experience at North Shore Gastro was done very professionally. Everyone, from the minute I got there and until I left the facility, helped me get through the procedure with calm patience. Needless to say, I am very nervous when I have to go for tests and this was my first colonoscopy, but the staff put me at ease the minute I went into the room. A huge thank you to all of the Staff for being so courteous and understanding.

I recently was treated by Dr. Milkes. He is easy to talk to, very friendly and genuine. He was informative about the procedure and explained it in a way that anyone would understand. The entire staff at North Shore Gastroenterology were great start to finish. My procedure was scheduled 7 days after my first visit. The atmosphere is very comfortable and they make you feel safe. The Anesthesiologist, nurse and staff were great, friendly, helpful and most of all caring.

I appreciated that Dr. Abittan spent a good deal of time speaking with me at my pre-colonoscopy/endoscopy appointment and then again after the procedure. I didn’t feel rushed, which is important with a doctor, especially when undergoing a procedure and biopsies.

Dr. Talansky is a very competent and caring doctor. He listens and understands my description of my symptoms. He explains his concerns and how he can investigate my condition and how it can be fixed. I have the highest confidence in his work.

All of the girls on the phone have always been very helpful. A lot of doctor offices have rude and un-helpful staff I’ve found but everyone in your office has always been willing to help and take messages and help with getting refills etc..

Whenever I call the office, I am met with the voice of a friendly and helpful person. The lady who helped me navigate this site, and I’m sorry I don’t remember her name, was patient and assisted me every step of the way to resolve my problem. The nurse in the procedure room, and I’m sorry I don’t remember her name (I want to say Aisha) was calm and kind, and made me feel very comfortable, instead of nervous.

I could not be more pleased with the care I received at North Shore Gastro! Dr. Abittan and his staff are professional, friendly, and extraordinarily competent. The procedure (colonoscopy and endoscopy) was a totally non-intimidating experience. What more can I say?… Highest possible ratings!!!

Dr. Rattner is a very pleasant Dr. He was listening what I had to say without rushing or over talking me . Unfortunately most of the Dr.s have a bad habit of not listening what the patients have to say. Dr. Rattner also returned my phone calls on the same day ! I had a very pleasant experience and I highly recommend Dr. Rattner .

I have been seeing Dr. Dicker for 14 yrs. I now live in Oregon and travel to NY just to see him. He is honest and professional all the time, he listens, examines you, then tells you what he thinks, very thorough. very happy with the quality of care I receive from him and his staff.
