Gastroenterology Associates of Fairfield County, PC is honored to have four members of its team recognized as “Top Docs.” The physicians–Drs. Edward Grossman, Kenneth Mauer, Julie Spivack and Strick Woods–epitomize a commitment to being “the digestive health experts.” They provide excellent, cutting-edge medical care at offices in Fairfield, Bridgeport and Monroe, and are affiliated with St. Vincent’s Medical Center. “Our goal is to treat people with potentially embarrassing problems with great sensitivity and care,” says Dr. Spivack. “We develop close relationships with our patients, and take a genuine interest in their health concerns.” Gastroenterology Associates of Fairfield was the first Connecticut practice to offer state-of-the-art capsule endoscopy, in which patients swallow tiny cameras encased in pills that allow doctors a closer look at their digestive tracts. At The Endoscopy Center of Fairfield, the practice’s licensed, accredited ambulatory surgery center, the physicians perform outpatient colonoscopies and endoscopies. The doctors have specialized training in digestive health issues including indigestion and heartburn, chest pain, gall bladder, ulcer and irritable bowel disease, colon and pancreatic cancers, liver diseases and hepatitis. They are also experts in Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. “We are extremely well-rounded and very proud of that,” says Dr. Spivack. “We work very closely and often take a team approach with difficult cases.” Several of the practice’s physicians have been recognized for their excellence. Dr. Woods was 2009 Physician of the Year at St. Vincent’s Medical Center, and Drs. Mauer and Grossman have been among New York magazine’s “Best Doctors” in recent years. In prior years they have been honored in Connecticut, New York and Westport magazines. This year’s “Top Docs” are proud to practice with their talented associates Drs. Emil Blanco, Eddy Castillo, Gena Cobrin and Richard Lopatin, and Danielle Weckesser, P.A.
