Somerset, NJ |
Dr. Accurso has a nice bedside manner... he doesn't make you feel rushed, even though he's a very busy doctor. I feel comfortable knowing that he's going to help me get to the bottom of my issue.
in Bridgewater, N.J. |
I have been treated by Dr. Accurso for many years. I did a lot of homework before selecting him as my surgeon. He is an excellent doctor who always gives me descriptive results of the procedures. I have the utmost trust in hm. I would recommend Dr. Accurso to family and friends.
Warren, NJ |
Dr Accurso is great. I had an upper stomach issue that sent me to the ER twice. I went to another doctor who put me through test after test after test under the assumption it was my gallbladder. I THEN went to Dr Accurso and he diagnosed me within 2 minutes of the exam me telling me it was muscular. I went to physical therapy to address it and the pain is gone. In addition, he is kind, patient and makes you feel very comfortable. I continue to go to him. HIGHLY suggested!

From the moment you walk into the office you will know this is the best doctor's office you will ever visit. The office staff, nurses and doctors are top notch. I have had 3 procedures done in their surgical center and I cannot say enough good things about how my care was handled. They are professional, caring and helpful. I would recommend this group to anyone that needs digestive health care.

A colonoscopy is not the most pleasant of procedures (particularly the prep) but Dr. Accurso has a nice sense of humor that makes it all less unpleasant. I wouldn't go to anyone else.
in Hillsborough, NJ |
Just had my third colonoscopy (over 15 years) with Dr. Accurso. No question, he is the best. Very professional, knowledgable, with excellent bed-side manners. I highly recommend him and his practice.
in Yardley, Pa |
I have been a patient of Dr Accurso's for 30+ years. He is caring and he has kept me in good health for all these years. Being a scientist I have a real appreciation of his diagnostic approach and it's effectiveness in controlling my condition. He is The Best. C Hirsch
Somerset, NJ |
I really liked my previous doctor but he retired. I asked around and Dr. Accurso was recommended. I told him at our first appointment that a good bedside manner was a must for me and he did not disappoint. He was very specific with how the procedure would be performed and answered all of my questions at the follow-up visit

This is the second time I've gone to Dr Accurso and I was extremely satisfied both times even though they were over 15 years apart. He is an excellent doctor with a wonderful bedside manner.

I mean when I needed to see another gastro guy, what more of a recommendation could you have then to find the doctor that saw you 15 years ago.

My office visits with Dr. Accurso are always excellent and informative. The office staff is consistently professional, helpful, and eager to provide me with a comfortable environment. I would highly recommend the Digestive Healthcare Center to anyone. Donald Reilly Middlesex, NJ
in Bridgewater, NJ |
After two colonoscopies with him over 10 years, I wonder if Dr. Accurso is burning out. While the office is very efficient, the human touch is definitely lacking. They go through the motions like a mill. He said good morning before the procedure and everything's OK afterwards, and nothing else. He said nothing about findings to my wife and I but did put it in his report. Why?
in Manville, NJ |
Dr. Accurso and everyone on his staff are absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough positive comments about Dr. Accurso and the entire staff. I found it necessary to need his expertise many times in the past two years and experienced the most competent, caring care in his office, at his ambulatory facility and in the hospital. Every concern I had was taken care of. Results and appointments were made for me, calls returned ASAP and respect and regard for my well-being beyond expectations.
in Bedminster, NJ |
Dr. Accurso and the entire staff are exemplary professionally, and are warm and personable which is not the norm today. On another note, I have had numerous procedures in many facilities for on-going GI issues and both their office and their affiliated Surgi-Center is the best facility I have ever experienced. I would recommend to anyone who has any GI issues.
in Bridgewater, NJ |
Extremely professional, knowledgeable, personable and caring
in Jersey City, NJ |
He was extremely attentive to my issues. I was shocked when he called my primary care physician on speaker phone while I was in the office so the three of us could discuss my issue together. Most doctors would never get around to calling; but he made sure my primary care doctor was aware of everything that was going on.
in Middlesex, NJ |
Wonderful experience with this doctor, his staff is nice and friendly, the facility so clean and the waiting time is minimum.
in Branchburg, NJ |
I recently had a colonoscopy screening done by Dr Accurso. He and his staff are professional in every way. They were very careful to ensure that everything was explained to me, that I was comfortable, and that the entire experience was as pleasant as possible. After the procedure, Dr Accurso took the time to personally explain the results with me, and he answered every question I had.
in Hillsborough, NJ |
I chose to have my procedure without sedation and was very glad I did. During the procedure Dr. Accurso explained to me what I was viewing on the monitor and for the exception of some very little discomfort, the entire experience was painless. Overall from the greeting I received from the front desk team to the nurses assisting Dr. Accuso, I was made to feel I was their only patient that day. Not having the sedative allowed me to return to work and even drive to appointments. Well done doc!
in Bridgewater, NJ |
Dr. Accurso is a very knowledgable and compassionate physician. He does everything he can to make the patient feel cared for, validated and well again. He has a diverse practice offering diverse services that make it very convenient for the patient. He seeks to employ like- minded professionals who continue his philosophy in all areas of patient care. He has been my gastroenterologist for twenty years and has kept me well and informed in new areas of treatment.
Manville, NJ |
Dr. Accurso met with me when I was dealing with unknown abdominal pain that was frightening and concerning. He maintained a supportive and calm demeanor, was professional, and took the time to listen to my concerns. He helped me develop a plan of action to address my pain and gave me immediate feedback through each meeting we had. I feel I can call him to discuss my health and will receive the support needed to resolve my issues. Thank you, Dr. Accurso!
Office is clean and runs very efficiently. Dr. Accurso is both friendly and professional. His office staff is likewise professional and friendly.
