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

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.

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
