Caring for and treating digestive disorders

Giving our community regular access to a board certified gastroenterologist is one reason we have earned the trust of our patients. Dhiren Patel, MD sees patients at ERH every Wednesday. He is fellowship trained in Gastroenterology and board certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. Dr. Patel diagnoses and treats the full gamut of digestive disorders:

  • Stomach problems
  • Acid reflux
  • Chronic nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Swallowing difficulties

Using the on-site facilities of Ellenville Regional Hospital, you need go no further for diagnostic testing:

  • CT scan
  • Blood tests
  • Ultrasounds

Through our Ambulatory Surgery unit, we can perform essential diagnostic procedures including:

  • Upper endoscopies
  • Colonoscopies, including biopsy and polyp removal
