    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

Unconcerned callous

He referred me to a surgeon in Long island city to have a surgery (pancreatectomy) which proved to be totally unnecessary. The second option was obtained from a Doctor at an institution which recently merged with his hospital. His recommendation was uninformed, incompetent and almost resulted in malpractice.

One Star

This Dr may be smart but he has had very little time for me as a sick patient that has needed a lot of time from him and also needed to talk to him which is almost impossible.I do need a doctor that is available to me and Dr.K is out of the country a lot!And when he is here he is so busy you feel like a number not a patient.It has been a big disappointment,when I first met him I thought I found the doctor that was really going to help me and listen to me but it did not happen.If I knew when I first met him what I know now I would have picked another doctor.I hope this helps someone to make a better choice than I did.He looks great on paper and can be charming when you meet him but that ends quickly.

Dont bother, plenty of more caring Drs in the city.

I gave this Dr. several chances to change my mind however my feelings were only reinforced. I was hospitalized several times with GI related issues at HIS hospital and he didnt bother to stop by, send someone from his team or even call. This is after I had an obstruction which followed a procedure he did (which was not his fault) I called numerous times for help or advice from his office and never recieved a call back or any word from them. I was admitted for a total of almost a week and never a word from them or a returned call. He may be good at what he does but whats the point if you are going to leave your patients hanging. My case was handled by residents, a good Dr. would have helped put me in more capable hands.
