Hi everyone. I've been away from this board for a long time. It's nice to come back, although now I'm having problems again (I was fine for a while!).
Anyway, I know this has been asked before, but can anyone recommend a good GI in Manhattan, NY area?? I know there's Dr. Abreu (who actually takes my insurance), but I hear from another post that she's leaving? I would like someone who I can work with long term and who has good bedside manner. not someone who'll take my money and run. haha. anyway, please let me know if you have any recs! thanks!!!!

I go to Dr. Ben-Zvi. He is associated with Lenox Hill Hospital, and his Manhattan office is 911 Park Ave.
No complaints from me.

I see Dr. Ellen Scherl and Dr. Brian Bosworth at the Jill Roberts IBD Center which is affiliated with NYPresbyterian Cornell Medical.  There center is only for people with IBD.  They are both extremely knowledgable.  I first saw Dr. Scherl after she was a guest speaker at the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation Dinner.  She did not take my insurance so then I went to her associate Dr. Bosworth.  He is very young but extremely smart!  All they do is IBD.  I  live on Long Island but the trip to the city is worth it.  I went for opinions at Mt. Sinai and was not happy.

Let me know if you need any other info.
