Great doctor and always listens to what you have to say . I would recommend him highly.
Dr Pastrich .for sure, saved my life. He requested tests no other doctor had, and it was because of his dedicated, my lung cancer was caught early while the tumor was still small and had not spread. I would 100% recommend Dr Pastrich to EVERYONE !!!

I have been seeing the D. Pastrich for many years now and I am beyond pleased with his care. As a sufferer of Chrons and Celiac my quality of life could never have gotten to such a normal and almost carefree existence. Dr. Pastrich has worked to find the proper path to minimize my health issues and is always there when I need him.

Dr. Pastrich is a class act in his profession! He is caring and thorough and has a great bed-side manner. I recently had my 3rd colonoscopy by him, and was appreciative that he is persistent in reminding me of my family history of colon cancer and to be vigilant about my healthcare. Our entire family sees Dr. Pastrich for gastrointestinal health. I have and will continue to recommend him to my friends and anyone reading this review who is seeking an excellent diagnostic gastro doctor.

Dr. Pastrich is kind, caring and highly professional. Among his many qualities he has a remarkable ability to look beyond the obvious and determine what could alternatively be causing your symptoms. He is thorough, excellent at diagnosing and properly addresses your health issues. Because of his outstanding knowledge in his field, I credit him for saving my life 20 years ago when I had a stage 3 colon cancer that was misdiagnosed by 3 other drs. Facility is very comfortable and inviting as well

in Bayport, NY |
I have known Dr. Pastrich both professionally in my dealings with him as a registered nurse and as his patient during a period of time I was battling cancer for the past 25 years. My family has been cared for by him. I had a regular visit with him recently preparing for a routine colonoscopy. He maintains his caring and professional manner even considering the demands of a very busy practice and the state of health care in the year 2016. His knowledge and expertise in the field is laudable.
