He did surgery on me about 3, maybe 4 years ago. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. He took his time and explained things. The “magic cream” helped and worked quickly. My life was was miserable for months before I met Dr. Rosen. Go right to the source - he’s the man.

Two visits, different diagnosis on second and nothing accomplished or changed other than a recommendation to see a different doctor. Miracle cream did nothing. Exam on second caused some pain.

Like most people, I was very nervous and afraid of having a colonoscopy. Dr. Rosen made the experience, pleasant, easy and comfortable. He explained everything thoroughly and he was very knowledgeable. Great bedside manners. He cared about me, and showed it.
