Located on Upper Park Avenue, East Side G.I. comprises board certified gastroenterologists Dr. Ron Palmon and Dr. Peter K. Chang.
We specialize in gastroenterology and liver disease, including acid reflux, abdominal pain, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhea, swallowing disorders, gastrointestinal bleeding, colon polyps and cancer, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, hepatitis, gallstones, and diseases of the bile duct and pancreas. We perform procedures such as colonoscopy and upper endoscopy with an anesthesiologist.
In recent years, many private practices have been purchased by large hospitals or multi-specialty groups. Too often this leads to impersonal service, difficulty contacting your physician, as well as increased charges. Drs. Chang and Palmon maintain a traditional small-office setting on Park Avenue with a stable and small set of staff members. We respond to phone calls personally and pride ourselves on providing the highest level of service to our patients. We value our patients greatly and look forward to forming a lifelong relationship. Many of our patients are referred by their friends, colleagues, and family members who have had a positive experience with us.
