Dr. Peter H Green has the following 2 specialties
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Exceptional doctor. Really spends time with you to understand your physical and mental state. I have celiac disease and really struggle with staying on the diet, and he is encouraging but not in your face about it. His nicest comment was that he would treat me either way, which I really appreciated. He also follows up by mailing me copies of all test results with hand written notes about what to do next. Best gastroenterologist I've seen - and I've been to several!!
Based on my experience it was my impression that this physician was pompous, adversarial, lacking in empathy and emotionally detached. Most significantly, based on the subsequent results, he was way off base regarding his diagnosis but meanwhile subjecting me to an inordinate number of unnecessary diagnostic imaging tests (ex, CT scan, etc) potentially placing me in danger for serious medical issues ( ie, cancer) in the future. In my opinion I would suggest finding a physician who is primarily capable of being compassionate as well as an excellent diagnostician. Such physicians are out there but one needs to do their "homework" carefully.
I had to pay $550 to see him. My appointment was less than 15 minutes and he didn't answer any of the questions I had. I wish there were other celiac experts in NYC as he so easily takes advantage of us.
