Here, at Atlantic Gastroenterology, your health, safety and comfort has always been our top priority.

There is a growing public risk surrounding COVID-19 and we are closely monitoring the situation. As a medical facility, we have always followed protocols for disinfection and disease prevention. Given the current situation, and with guidance from our medical director, Dr. Shapsis, we have increased the frequency of these cleanings to occur multiple times every hour at each of our facilities for virus prevention.

We look forward to continuing to serve you, and to doing our part to keep you and our communities safe, and keep our hospitals from being overloaded with non-urgent visits. Please know that you can also make appointments for telemedicine consultations.

Thank you for your loyalty and always know that we will do our best to do the right thing for all of our guests.

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

Dr. Shapsis, president of the clinic, is known nationally as a published author for 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. 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.

Since we initially began seeing patients, our practice has:

  • Received multiple awards including public and professional recognitions for service excellence
  • Been acknowledged for contributions to medical advancement
  • Received honors in Best of Brooklyn Awards for Gastroenterology & Hepatology Physicians, a number of times
  • Been appointed to the Brooklyn Business Hall of Fame

Caring for our community

We are living in a unique era of national health care reform. As a result, the Atlantic Gastroenterology team is continually looking for ways to improve in order to better serve the needs of our patients and the broader community. Our practice is equipped with the latest innovative diagnostic and treatment technologies, and we have a terrific team of top New York specialists who are dedicated to providing excellence in patient care.
