    Dr. Pasternak is incredibly professional, knowledgeable and thorough. His office runs like a well-oiled machine. He has been my doctor for 10 years and I have had 3 colonoscopies over that time. The procedure is always run perfectly and I am comfortable. They explain everything in detail so you know what to expect. I highly recommend Dr. Pasternak.
    in Amity Harbor, NY |
    I have never visited a doctor who was so thorough and very concerned about my health. He's very at tentative and is patient and listens to what you have to say. He also teaches and gives you hand-outs of your condition and other information on following up to improve your health. Also, he has called me himself, with new information and to checkup on how I was feeling at 9pm. That is something that rarely if ever happens.
    in Levittown, NY |
    When I went to Dr. Pasternack, I had undiagnosed Ulcerated Colitis and 2 stomach ulcers which were missed by a prior gasteroenterologist. After 2 tests, he easily diagnosed both conditions and treated me for them.

    He is very kind and thorough. He explains everything so you are clear on what procedures will be done, what dietary steps you will need to follow if any, and there is a follow up call to see how you are feeling. I highly recommend Dr. Pasternak.
