Dr. Terrany actual saved my life about 4 years ago. Under the care of another doctor for about 5 years and after constant procedures, infusions, pain, and many years of anemia ,it was finally Dr. Terrany who just happened to take my case (because my doctor was on vacation) and did my procedure and found my problem immediately and sent me for surgery. I am in good health now, no anemia. Thank you Dr. Terrany!!!!

Dr. Terrany performed two procedures on me yesterday at the Ocean Surgical Pavilion in Oakhurst NJ. Lisa and Tammy took good care of me alleviating my concerns and making me comfortable. Dr. Ben Terrany deserves the utmost praise. He took his time with me, answered all my questions prior to the procedure and was with me as I woke up in recovery. He is kind, thorough, compassionate, and has the best bedside manner. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for the best gastroenterologist!

Outstanding specialist with a country doctor personality. Dr. Terrany is very approachable & takes the time to listen to you. He is a caring doctor and never rushes you. It is obvious from my doctor-patient conversations that Dr. Terrany stays current on medical research. But as they say, behind every great man is a great women! Tracy Friedman keeps it all going smoothly from every angle of a medical practice. She has been on his medical staff for years and it shows. What a great team! Sue M.
