Not a fan. Before he performs any tests he's trying to push meds on you. Avoid doctors who only care about their own pockets.

Marion Ross-Hines in Queens, N.Y. – Feb 15, 2017
Both my husband and I are patients of Dr. Tripodi. My husband is a volunteer firefighter and gets a full work up done every year to be cleared for the firehouse and not one doctor took the time to notice or even tell us his liver numbers were slightly off until his first appointment with Dr. Tripodi. He took his time and really cared about treating my husband. The care we have gotten from him is outstanding and I highly recommend him as a physician. He is very thorough and a kind/sensitive MD.

Dr. Tripodi has been my Gastrointestinal physician for many years. Recently I was losing weight and blood which resulted in me becoming anemic.I visited Dr. Tripodi where he performed numerous tests and found the bleeding sites in my large and small intestines. He never gave up the search and after long hours in outpatient surgery,reached the source of the bleed in the lower part of my small intestine without me having to undergo open surgery.His actions and dedication saved my life. .

Dean Tremano in Melville NY – May 15, 2016
I am a GI nightmare. Barrett's esophagus on both sides of the family and I have it as well. Been seeing Dr. Tripodi for over 2 decades and he has managed my condition very well. Have regular endoscopies and he gives me the right medication. No progression and no dysplasia. I don't even have ANY symptoms of acid indigestion and eat whatever I want. Moreover he shows concern for my overall health - weight, blood pressure, etc. Have recommended him to many and they all remain regular patients.

KB in Manorville, NY – May 14, 2016
I have been going to Dr Tripodi for over 10 years and in that time he has found some issues and taken complete care of them. His bedside manner is unreproachable. He has always been there when I needed him. I have recommended numerous people and relatives to him and each and every one of them has thanked me over and over. He is very through and does not skip steps to make sure everything is taken care of. Every time I do go to him he personally calls me to follow up with me.
