Dr. Opper is the third Gastroenterologist I have been with since my Chrohn's disease diagnosis. He is by far the most compassionate and skillful of them all. My quality of life has improved significantly since becoming a patient of Dr. Opper's.

Dr. Opper made us feel that he was in our world and he shared his knowledge with us regarding the condition my husband had. He has a terrific personality, is easy to communicate with and spends whatever time is required to answer your questions and concerns. Dr Opper is a great doctor.

Dr. Opper was wonderful with my 17 year-old who was experiencing long-term gastric issues. He took plenty of time to answer her questions and explain (in terms she could understand) what might be the cause of her concerns. He had a very relaxed, friendly, yet confident demeanor that put us at ease immediately. My daughter expressed to me after the appointment how much she liked Dr. Opper and felt comfortable in his care. We would highly recommend him.
