Gastroenterologist Office in Englewood Cliffs


I've been a patient of Dr. Chessler's for several years and he has always taken great care of me. It's rare to find a doctor that you can connect with and his bedside manner has always put me at ease. He's incredibly thorough and I trust all of his decisions regarding my health care. I saw him recently for an issue with a chronic condition and he quickly identified the problem and a solution. I started feeling much better within days. I've always had a positive experience with him.

Dr. Fiorillo is the best! He is easy to talk too and makes you feel comfortable. He is prompt in returning calls and emails within 24 hours. He has help not only me but my father as well. Office staff is very polite. I highly recommend Dr. Fiorillo.

Dr. Ivan Friedrich had diagnosed me in 2009 and has helped me every step of the way. He is very caring and also takes the time out to get to know who you are.

Just had a endoscopy & endoscopy with Dr. Kaplounova. All I can say was that this is a 5 star physician. Explains everything, professional, pleasant and truly cares about her patients. This was my first endoscopy & endoscopy so I was very apprehensive, but her bedside manner is superb. It was a truly wonderful experience being her patient! The staff was very pleasant as well!

My mother's oncologist recommended Dr. Michael Meininger to her and then I also took him up on his recommendation. I can see why Dr. Meininger was so favored. He is a very warm, professional, and knowledgeable doctor. I enjoyed talking with him as he addressed my concerns and took time answering my incessant questions, especially one particular question that was asked of him five times in five different ways -- never showed annoyance or lost patience with me. I greatly fear anesthesia, so I also want to thank his anesthesiologist for showing tremendous compassion when I went under for my colonoscopy. Dr. Meininger and his whole staff are excellent.

Dr. Panella listened to me carefully, explained the tests required, and instructed his staff to help me scheduling tests. He shows he cares and willing to understand my problems. He is an excellent doctor I can trust.

Wow, Dr. Rubin was one of my best doctors. He listened to what I had asked for, explained to me what he was doing, as well as why he was doing it, did not make me feel rushed, and encouraged questions. He gave me complete testing choices, laid out all of the options before me, and even suggested doing research for me that I had not even thought of. He was willing to think outside the box. (Also I needed to reschedule and the staff was cool with that). He also has evening hours which was useful, and was able to do the endoscopy and colonoscopy in house, which went smoothly. I would very highly recommend him.

I was seen in Dr. Mark Sapienza office on 2/23/16. It was a great relief to have seen him as a follow-up to my back surgery and he put me at easy to what has been a very hard recovery! I left there in a with a better feeling then when i got there. I would and have told other people about him and his professionalism and that he alway's has with me no matter how busy or time of day! I am very proud to say he is my doctor! Sincerely, John J. Klein!

I have been a patient of Doctor Spinnell for many years. I have chronic pancreatitis which Doctor Spinnel diagnosed when no other doctor was able to. His style of treating at least my situtation is trial and error avoiding majot surgey at all costs. He even recommended that I see a pancreas specialist just to ensure myself that Doctor Spinnell is treating the problem in the most direct methodology and course of action. His assistant is always friendly returning my calls when needed promptly. Doctor Spinnell takes the time during the visit to make sure you understand the situation and not just run out after a few minutes to see another patient. He truly cares about his patients. Highly recommended.

If anyone deserves the title, it is Dr Zingler, as he was the first doctor to diagnose my condition and to see that I received the best possible care. Believe it or not, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer TEN YEARS AGO and I am still celebrating life with no evidence of recurrence. Dr Zingler got me to the right specialists and to this day watches over me. He is a skilled physician and a caring man; he takes time to listen to you and explains things clearly. He will call after regular office hours if necessary. What else can you ask for?
