From the doctorAfter over 25 years of practicing both Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology, I am now concentrating my practice on GI cancer screening which is still much under-utilized by those at higher or routine risks. It has been shown that experience and diligence plays a large role in finding early lesions during screening procedures. Having carefully performed greater than 25,000 procedures during my career, I can confidently say that I offer both.

Dr. Bednarek was named in the 2011 edition of Castle Connolly’s “Top Doctors: New York Metro Area.”
