We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

I would give a zero if I could. My father was hospitalized for 80 days, initially because of ongoing diarrhea. He was discharged from the hospital with diarrhea after Dr. Ginsberg's care. The entire time, he spent very little time with us and obviously couldn't wait to get out of the room each time he visited. Although my father's diarrhea never improved, he closed the case on three occasions. There was a very clear feeling that he was going through the motions and wasn't interested in my father's outcome. He also didn't do much "doctoring" in my opinion: didn't try different medications, try to identify the cause, really investigate, etc. It was a huge disappointment and we're left with a continuing problem. My advice would be not to waste your time or money.

I had a colonoscpy and an upper GI scope with Gr Ginsberg. He did an excellent and through job. After the procedure, when I was alert, he came to my bedside and sat with my wife and me to throughly discuss his findings and what he had done. Dr ginsberg was not rushed and we had a very good conversation, unlike a very busy Doctor, but more like a friend. I am 69 and have seen many doctors (even the Mayo Clinic) and this was quite refreshing and comforting. My wife was so impressed that she wants to switch from her doctor to Dr Ginsberg. It was a very good and exceptional experince.

Dr. Ginsberg is so knowledgeable and his bedside manner is fantastic. He makes you feel like you really matter to him, and he explains things so clearly. My only complaint is that he usually runs VERY behind schedule. It can be frustrating but I guess that’s part of the price to pay for the amount of time he spends with each patient.

I love this guy! I was referred by Dr. Lon McCroskey and I feel like I have a new friend. Dr Ginsberg took plenty of time to explain the procedure and make me feel comfortable and confident in his ability and a positive outcome. I was not disappointed! Afterwords he took the time to come by the recovery room and let me know what he found. I felt like he went out of his way to provide great patient service and I get the feeling he does this with everyone.. Kit Lindsay

Dr. Ginsberg is outstanding. He is the first Doc out of several in the past five years who actually listened to my symptoms and although they were somewhat rare, he researched and ultimately found what my issues were. He ordered tests which indicated an endocrine tumor (carcinoid) on my liver. Thank God for Dr. Ginsberg.

I have went to Dr. Ginsberg on multiple occasions since 1991 and rate him as the best. I refer my friends and family to him. He listens to all my questions, spends as much time as needed each visit. He has diagnosed my Celic Sprue, did my colonoscopy, and other issues/procedures.
