Palmadessa and Brodsky Associates offers a full complement of gastroenterology services designed to help our patients address their medical concerns and attain optimal health outcomes.

Expert Gastroenterology Care
Expert care is available from our board certified gastroenterologists for GI patients in close by Queens including Bayside, Whitestone, Flushing, New Hyde Park, Laurelton, and surrounding New York areas near you. We address concerns such as heartburn, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, finding the cause of your discomfort using procedures including endoscopy so that we can determine the most effective treatment plan. Even conditions such as GERD, which patients may consider less serious, can cause long term complications if left untreated, resulting in erosive esophagitis, narrowing of the esophagus, or a worsening of breathing issues such as asthma.
Beyond treatment of gastrointestinal diseases, we focus on preventative care. Early detection is key to defending against colon cancer, and we provide routine screening through colonoscopy. This safe and effective procedure allows a physician to examine your lower digestive tract and identify ulcers, abnormal growths, and inflamed tissue that may require treatment. Everyone should be screened by a gastroenterologist beginning at age 50, or 40 if they are at risk or have a family history of colorectal cancer.
If you are experiencing uncomfortable GI symptoms, want to schedule colon cancer screening, or have concerns about your health, call or email us to schedule an appointment today. We can help you to start feeling great inside and out.
