Brooklyn gastroenterologist treats wide range of conditions

Atlantic Gastroenterology is a state-of-the-art clinic located in the New York area. The practice specializes in all aspects of gastroenterology, hepato-billiary diseases, and hepatology. In July of 2007, we opened our doors for the first time and began serving patients in Brooklyn and the greater New York area. Since then, we have maintained the highest standards in patient care and advanced medicine. “I willingly take on the role of keeping our practice at the forefront of this area of medicine, striving for excellence in gastrointestinal procedures and in-patient care,” says Board-certified gastroenterologist, Dr. Alexander Shapsis.

Qualified and experienced gastroenterologist in Brooklyn

Intragastric balloon insertions (SPATZ -2) Certificate Dr. Shapsis, president of the clinic, is known nationally as a published author of numerous research articles on various topics related to gastroenterology and gastrointestinal motility disorders. He is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. He is one of the first gastroenterologists in the US to have performed early intragastric balloon insertions (SPATZ-2) well before they were FDA-approved in the USA, making him the first gastroenterologist in New York to be proficient in this skill. He was trained by the inventor Dr. Jeffrey Brooks himself and learned it from the source. He has also successfully completed the training course for the ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon System. Dr.Shapsis is also active in the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and the American College of Gastroenterology. As a doctor, he is driven by a rare commitment to patient care and the treatment of colon cancer.

  • Received multiple awards including public and professional recognitions for service excellence
