With the semi-retirement of my gastroenterologist, I must admit that I was uncomfortable knowing that I would be having such an awkward procedure with total strangers; ----I needn’t have worried. From the moment Dr. Chen (the anesthesiologist) entered the changing room and offered his arm to “take me to Hawaii” I smiled. He described the beach, the sand, the smell of the ocean; he mentioned my husband by name and told me that Bill was waving to me from the shore. Marisol (Dr. Bansal's surgical assistant) took the time from setting up to introduce herself and make sure I was comfortable. And then, Dr. Bansal came to my bedside in his street-clothes (I was aware that Marisol was getting a surgical gown ready for him on the side), took my hand gently, introduced himself, and assured me that everything was going to be fine. He continued to hold my hand until I fell sweetly asleep.
After the procedure, he took the time to speak with me in the office and didn’t rush me. In less than an hour, he developed a trust that few doctors are able to accomplish. Bravo! I look forward to a long relationship with him.read less

I went to several doctors Nobody could figure out what was wrong with me. I lost over 30lbs. He did an ultrasound endoscopy and found a carcinoid tumor growing into my pancreas. He recommended Dr. Brennan from Sloan Kettering that performed a Whipple procedure. It has been a long road I still go to my annual checkups. I really feel that if Dr. Bansal did not find this I would not be alive today. Thank you, Dr Bansal, I will be forever gratefulread less

He is so thorough in history taking, examination, and listening to the patient, and also seeing the patient as a person. His patient interactions , caring , and clinical expertise demonstrate his excellence as a physician and as a person. His office personnel are each as expert in humanness and provision of care as Dr. Bansal. Melanie, who manages and coordinates procedure scheduling and patient preprocedure instructions is so kind , organized, and incredibly skilled! She is worth her weight in gold. The entire procedure team including the anesthesiologist , procedure nurse , and the medical assistant in Dr. Bansal’s office are top notch in their caring and expertise as well . They treat you as if you are a member of their family with respect and kindness. All physicians and their teams should be like Dr. Bansal’s team.

Concerned About Your Digestive Health? Put Your Mind at Ease with Suffolk County’s Leading Gastroenterologist: Dr. Rajiv Bansal
When you’re eating, you probably don’t think much about what happens to the food after you swallow it; you likely only focus on how it tastes while you’re chewing it. Every time you eat, your gastrointestinal system is hard at work digesting food so that your body can use what it needs and expels what it doesn’t.
The gastrointestinal (GI) tract (also referred to as the digestive tract or system) is a highly complex system that is derived from multiple organs. Each organ works together to successfully digest and dispose of the food you consume; however, any part of the GI tract can become damaged or diseased, and when that happens, the health of your entire body can suffer.
Because digestive health is so important, seeing a gastroenterologist should be high on your list of priorities; especially if you’re over the age of 50 or if you are experiencing any concerning symptoms. If you live in Suffolk County, you have your choice when it comes to gastroenterologists, but you’ll want to see someone who has a proven track record of success and is highly esteemed by the medical community. In Suffolk County, that gastroenterologist is Dr. Rajiv Bansal.

Dr. Rajiv Bansal has been hailed as a leading gastrointestinal specialist in Babylon, NY for more than two decades. With a medical degree from Brown University Medical School, an Internal Medicine Residency from Duke University Medical Center, and a Gastroenterology Fellowship from the University of Michigan Medical Center, Dr. Bansal certainly has the credentials to certify his ability to accurately diagnose and treat conditions of the GI tract.
In addition to his training, Dr. Bansal performed the first ever Endoscopic Ultrasound Program for GI cancer staging, an advanced test that is used in the diagnosis and treatment of malignancies within the gastrointestinal tract. During his tenure as a gastroenterologist, he has successfully completed more than 30,000 procedures – ranging from cancer treatment to colonoscopies and endoscopies, as well as diagnostic tests, therapies, and surgical procedures for a wide range of other conditions that affect the GI tract.
Now operating his own practice – Long Island Gastroenterology, Hepatology & Therapeutic Endoscopy Associates – Dr. Bansal and his staff of Board Certified Physician Assistants provide comprehensive care in a private, comfortable setting.
