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's style and demeanor made you feel at ease and relaxed right from the start. He always took the time to answer my questions and allay any apprehensions that I had. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and neighbors.

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.

Had my first colonoscopy today. Dr Opper's staff was very helpful and friendly, I felt as though I was their only patient. Dr Opper was very thorough in explaining the process and what he is looking for. I would highly recommend.
