I can not say enough positive about Dr. Kahaleh to emphasize how amazing he is! He performed procedures that others were unable to do at a critical time in my mother’s life. He made us feel comfortable, explaining each step in great detail. His staff ensured follow up was timely as well to monitor her condition. We HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kahaleh!!

I had two consecutive procedures done by Dr Kahaleh in 2017. I could not recommend him at all. He refuses to answer calls re complications, or follow up. Even if you make an appointment to ask a follow up question he sends his admin and only reluctantly sees you personally. He did not return calls from my PCP at all, although these were about post-procedure problems,, for over a month. When I asked at Weil Cornelll why I couldn’t get hold of him I was told that he is very difficult to contact.

Unbelievable, expedited, professional, personable, excellent care! This is, out of 6 Gastrointestinal doctors I have been a patient of over 4 years, is undoubtedly THE BEST in ALL respects. Doctor Michel Kahaleh, along with his Super Smart, quick minded, personable & professionalism, RN Andrea Benvenuto, ANP-BC, make for a DREAM TEAM! All those associated with these two excellent care professionals (Monica & Maritza particularly), are very attentive and provide for, pleasantly, all your needs
