Long recognized as one of the most prestigious gastroenterology practices in the region, Affiliates in Gastroenterology (AIG) has consistently had physicians among the top-ranked doctors in New Jersey throughout the group’s 44-year history. This premier practice is home to
Dr. Matthew Askin, Dr. John Morton, Dr. Lawrence Rosenthal and Dr. Robert Schuman. These talented board-certified gastroenterologists
work collaboratively with their colleagues Drs. Zalman Schrader, William Sloan, Lawrence Stein, Michael Samach, Carl Wallach and Ellen
Rosen to bring the most advanced care to thousands of patients each year in the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania region.
The mission of AIG is to provide superior and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment in the kindest, most compassionate manner possible.
The doctors use a patient-centered approach to care, aimed at building positive relationships based on trust and respect.
With a focus on preventive medicine, the group offers a full range of endoscopic procedures and screenings for colon cancer, as well as treatment of gastrointestinal disorders such as gastroesophageal reflux (GERD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease
(Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis). Cutting-edge services include endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopan-creatography (ERCP) to diagnose and evaluate gastrointestinal cancers and treat pancreatobiliary disorders; radiofrequency ablation (RFA)
to treat Barrett’s esophagus and reduce the risk of esophageal cancer; and capsule endoscopy to diagnose disorders of the small intestine. The
practice also offers banding to treat hemorrhoids.
