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

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 must say from the very moment i walked in the front desk staff was welcoming, and so kind. The PA and Dr Bansal were the best individuals I ever met in the medical field . They were extremely patient and so understanding. Took their time to understand and take in every detail of my symptoms and really show their want in helping me feel like myself again. Staff was very professional and supportive in helping me understand procedure processes and having a smooth system to help set up appointments, etc. Wonderful service!read less

You’ll also be asked to share any symptoms that you may be experiencing. Don’t forget to share any medications that you are taking and previous conditions that you have been diagnosed with and treated for.
You’ll undergo a physical examination, which will allow the doctor or physician’s assistant to assess your current health and the symptoms that you are experiencing.
After your examination has been completed, the medical team will discuss their findings with you and let you know what course of action should be taken moving forward.
If you are having diagnostic testing, such as a colonoscopy, you will be walked through the process before you arrive so that you know exactly what to expect on the day of your procedure.
The doctor will review your results with you and let you know if any further treatments are required.
