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.

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.

was misdiagnosed after numerous visits, blood tests, a stool test and a colonoscopy. i ended up going to a different doctor and was properly diagnosed and treated just weeks later. this new doctor basically said that in his professional opinion, dr. goldstein screwed up. he was baffled at how dr. goldstein missed the proper diagnosis. on top of this, his staff seems to be incredibly lazy and his billing administrators are completely incompetent.aside from the misdiagnosis and dr. goldstein's seemingly indifference to my pain and suffering, his office is a mess...literally and figuratively. there was one occasion where i had to leave the office before i even saw dr. goldstein b/c they kept me waiting for over an hour. to make matters worse, they billed me for this office visit. i contacted their billing people to explain the situation and they told me my account would be credited. evidently that was never done as i've now received my 3rd notice for this now overdue amount. i'm tempted to just pay the bill and wash my hands of this mess b/c it's been such a hassle, but i refuse to give these morons any more of my hard earned money. in sum, goldstein is a horrible doctor, his office is cramped and messy and his receptionists/billing people are incompetent. save yourself the time and go somewhere else.
I was bleeding from back there, so I went to see Dr. Goldstein. He told me it's nothing to worry about, it's probably just hemmoroids, because I am too young to have cancer. I was 35 yrs old, now I'm 36. I went on bleeding for 7 months believing this, but I noticed I was bleeding more and more and was feeling fatigued and got anemic, so I went back to him and he finally examined me and diagnosed me with anal cancer. I had intense treatments of both chemo and radiation for six weeks, worst and scary time of my life!! Pls see another gastro if you are bleeding no matter what age you are, your life is worth saving!!!
