Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Zucker "In our practice, we specialize in diagnosing and treating men and women of all ages for problems that affect the digestive system including ulcers, acid reflux, liver, gallbladder and bowel diseases. There are many medications and treatments available to relieve symptoms and treat gastric problems. When appropriate, we encourage each patient to have a colonoscopy because colorectal cancer is one of the most common causes of cancer deaths in the U.S. but is highly treatable when caught early."
