If you want a doctor who cares and puts your mind at ease, performs the procedure in an efficient manner, look no further. dr. Distler is your doctor. I was so nervous when I stumbled into his office that I could hardly sit down. He made me feel comfortable right away, explained the procedure and the entire experience of the procedure was pleasant. Not even a minor discomfort.Today is doctor's day! WhileI do not like doctor's visits, if I have to do it, I wish all doctors would be as Dr. Distler

His office staff (on the phone) literally makes you feel like the dumbest and most annoying person ever to walk the face of the earth when you just call to schedule an appt. Dude. Be nice. Be kind. Be helpful.

Dr. Distler's office on the upper east side is gross. The staff is friendly as is the doctor! Unfortunately, he's in the business of selling colonoscopies. He didn't examine me BUT he chatted away and he scheduled a colonoscopy! Then a week before the procedure his office called to give me to a different doctor to do the colonoscopy. Suddenly he would NOT take my insurance for the procedure. Is he proffering procedures to his colleagues in exchange for other work? Not cool...

The BEST , fortunate to have had him for endoscopy and colonoscopy treatments. Stabalized stomach issues and found a flat dime shaped growth way in back of colon ( Japanese researchers believe these to be particularly vulnerable to cancer); subsequent visits have given me the all clear and peace of mind !

Waited for over two hours standing in a crowded, tiny, hot, dirty office. Dr spent 10 minutes with me. Took blood I was told to call for results. I called, told to come in. I asked if something was wrong in the test was told "no". Cannot retrieve blood tests and they won't fax to new doctor. Still trying to call. Worst experience ever, don't know where all the good reviews came from but they really misled me. No one answers phone, no good if you have serious problems.
