I have had a colonoscopy every 5 years since 2000 colon cancer surgery and have been cancer free since 2000 after surgery. Dr Apter has done a fantastic job of watching over my health and I feel blessed that he is my gastroenterologist.

The staff and this doctor have no compassion or empathy. I was extremely worried about something and thought it might be cancer. It happened on the weekend. I called the answering service to have the doctor call me. Darlene called back and told me they couldn't find me in the system and asked if I was his patient. I said I was and had a colonoscopy three years ago. She said "you haven't seen him in three years!" Well he might not call you back". Before I could tell her that I had no reason to see him unless I had a gastroenterology issue, she hung up on me. I called back and the next person said the doctor would call me. He called and told me to do a few things and to call his office Monday morning and he comes in at 1:00 and I could see him Monday afternoon. When I called the office Monday, I got the same unprofessional treatment. They said he would not see me and that I needed a surgeon without him even looking at the issue. Ladies, find a female doctor.

My husband was diagnosed with UC a year ago. Our former gastro. no longer accepts our insurance so we were recommended Dr Apter by a current patient. When we called to schedule a new patient appointment today, his front desk person named Sharon informed us that he is not seeing patients with a dx of UC. I said “excuse me what?” She repeated herself. I clarified that this was indeed the Gastroenterolgist Dr Apter, which she said yes but “he chooses to no longer see patients w/UC” Interesting.

Dr. Apter is one of the finest doctors I have ever known. He has been my Gastro doctor for 30 years. He is a skilled professional, has a great attitude towards his patients and has a wonderful and caring staff. If you need Gastro care he is the one you need to see. His colorful bow ties will cheer you up even before he begins to care for your medical needs.

While Dr. Apter was perfectly pleasant, his prognosis was completely inaccurate. Had I not gone to another doctor, my gallbladder may have burst. He was thorough after the exam in terms of explaining things, but didn't believe, after I showed him where I was having pain, that it was gallstones. I exhibited tell tale signs of gallstones, so I'm very upset that this was overlooked, and I was not given an ultrasound. I will not be returning.

Best Gastroenterologist I have been to. I have been a patient of his since 1996 and recommend him to anyone that needs to see a Gastro. He is always kind, always listens, and makes you feel comfortable while talking about some uncomfortable things.

I saw Dr. Apter approximately 6 years ago, and was very pleased with his care. Because of that I called to make an appt. for another colonoscopy on July 13, 2017. I gave my new insurance info. I was told I didn't need to come into the office, and they would verify my insurance. At 11:30 a.m. the day before my procedure I was called by Bonnie (office mgr) that they do not accept my insurance. I was told that it was my job to check, and I was lucky she found it before my procedure!!!
