Learn about Dr. Zucker

Care Philosophy

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.
