I had a positive experience at DHC. They were very responsive to my questions and phone calls and always got back to me quickly, in regards to the prep, the procedure, anesthesia, billing, results.. They were on top of everything. I also got lucky the day of my procedure they were able to move my start time up. Most importantly, Dr. Gingold is a thorough, highly skilled, excellent surgeon. I very much appreciate everything he and DHC did for me. Thank you.

At age 52, just retired as a police supervisor almost 27 years, running a consulting company, I had to take the next step of making sure important aspects of my health are okay. My first time having a colonoscopy, first time going under the gas, leaves some nerves flowing big time. This entire staff all the way up to Dr. Greaves made the procedure very assuring, positive, and relaxed. I want to thank all of you for the great job in taking care of your patients!

I have had 3 procedures here over the years and Dr. Greaves and the entire staff were so professional and caring it made the procedures less stressful. From the initial visit with Dr. Greaves to all of the staff who took care of me on the day of the procedures I could not have asked for any better treatment. Thank you.

I am a long time patient of dr Alan Gingold, recently quoted in pain life magazine. I am a 40 year old female, despite the name above. I suffered terribly for years, becoming non functional, had all the tests, with no conclusive results. I know so many IBS patients that continue to suffer and attempt to manage because they have not treated the cause of the disorder. Dr. Gingold’s knowledge and practices are far beyond what other doctors are doing to help their patients. Today I am 99% symptom free, thanks to his conclusions and treatment plan. I think this is a major contribution to the cure for IBS and critical information for anyone suffering from the syndrome.Samantha Wyland

Just had a very positive experience with the people at the Center during my Colonoscopy exam. The instructions provided prior to the exam, the materials supplied and the actual procedure demonstrated to me that process improvement and process discipline is a priority at DHC. Everyone is professional, friendly and efficient.Each person introduced themselves, knew what they needed to do and showed concern for my comfort. It is so nice to have a healthcare place like this in NJ. Thank you Dr. Vergilio and Staff.

Dr. Vergilio is wonderful, very nice and listens to your concerns - Overall great doctor & great bedside manner! Also, always had good experiences with procedures being done by him at the Hillsborough location. (Only negative about DHC is a bad experience with Dr. Accurso quite a few years ago)
