“I found the staff at CJ Ambulatory Surgical Center to be solicitous and caring from the person at the front desk to the nurses and techs. All demonstrated their expertise. They were especially compassionate about a personal “side effect” I was feeling due to prep. I was provided comforting lidocaine gel. After I rested from anesthesia, I was escorted to Dr Lee for a briefing about my colonoscopy findings. A follow up appt was scheduled on the spot. I was escorted everywhere I needed to go and was not left alone. I was also watched in the restroom when I felt dizzy. When all was finished, I was escorted to the front desk after again verifying that I had someone to drive me home. The front desk person also verified I had a ride and asked me to wait in a chair inside the facility until my ride came in. All the way around, i felt comfortable with the professionals around me and the coming procedure. I would happily recommend the surgical center. I hope my comments will become part of other reviews about the surgical center.
Best regards, Lois Clarke”
“Dr. Vergillio is amazing. He is by far my favorite Doctor and such a great guy.
Furthermore, the staff at your facility far exceeds the expectation of any surgical center. Having had several procedures over many years, the staff’s professionalism and kindness has been consistent and is certainly appreciated, especially when one is having these types of procedures.
Keep up the good work! You guys are the best!”
“Dear Dr. Accurso,
I would like to tell you how wonderful of a job your staff delivered to my son on October 24, 2016. My son age 26 has a phobia of needles and procedures and was basically almost uncontrollable that afternoon. As someone who woks an 18 hour day, 7 days a week, I could understand your staff having little patience late in the day. On the contrary they were beyond fabulous and in today’s world you just don’t normally receive the attention or time he needed. The nurses (two Joann’s and Sean) were so understand to his needs something I will never forget. We spent an hour dealing with him trying to get him on a stretcher and never once did your staff do anything else by show kindness and willingness to work through his problem. I can never THANK them enough for their service to my son. As the CEO of Tixcity.com IF we can ever do anything for you or your staff, PLEASE let us help.
Lon S Belvin CEO”

“All the doctors here are really good. They care about you and your health. I would not go to any other.”
I just came back from the colonoscopy procedure today and I wanted to send this note to sincerely thank all of you for your dedication and sincerity and above all, those smiling faces to treat people with the sense of camaraderie and respect. I also cannot forget the knowledge part which was obvious during my care!
Starting with you and Kaylen’s noteworthy interaction and assistance yesterday morning during prep time. You really made sure that I was on track and I am sure you do this for all patients as your standard procedure. These initial interactions actually make a huge difference in someone’s experience with any establishment and you showed that your are the best. You even extended the same treatment this morning during the sign up procedure and I appreciate that.
Then comes Sandy! She made everything easy. Her approach to prepare me as a patient was unique with a personal touch. It was good to see that she was prompt as well as thorough. My sincere thanks goes to her.
The other staff also took great care of me. One woman who took me to the recovery room, I cannot recall her name, but the way she put the blanket on my body, tells me the she knows how to care. Tara is “the great story teller,” and I would call her “Bhavani,” (I do not know why she does not like that name) but she was focused on trying to shift my attention from pain.
In summary, it has been be my pleasure to talk about your extended team’s professionalism, expertise, and care to anyone who may be looking for unparalleled care for specific expertise that your organization provide.”

I travel nearly 250 miles (a 5 hour car ride) to visit one of the most outstanding physicians I have ever encountered, gastroenterologist, Dr. Charles A. Accurso, whose practice is in Hillsbourough, NJ (Digestive HealthCare Center). I first met Dr. Accurso in 1994. He had been highly recommended by my Ob-Gyn, Dr. Audrey Prefer of Mendham, NJ.”
While residing in New Jersey, I was patient of Dr. Accurso’s for eight years until I moved to up-state New York. Just prior to relocating, I learned that I needed to undergo a colonoscopy, for which Dr. Accurso and his staff readily accommodated me. The procedure went well and I felt better with the knowledge that I was leaving with a “clean bill of health.”
As difficult as it was to leave behind this extremely competent professional, who is first and foremost a caring and compassionate individual, it was nevertheless, necessary. The alternative would have been less than practical. Dr. Accurso was the last physician who I “signed off on” before exiting the stat.”

Dear Dr. Gingold,
I was a former patient of yours a couple of years back and I wanted to tell you how great of a doctor I thought you were. In 2008 I had salmonella while I was in college and I loved how you listened to me, explained everything to me, and you just put me at ease about everything. I was a pre med student at Rutgers and I knew I wanted to be a doctor, but not the doctor I saw other people being. Then I met you and saw great you were and that showed me that there are doctors who take their work seriously and do it for the right reasons. I saw that you were a D.O and decided to do more research on what exactly that was. As I was doing research I saw that being a D.O may be for me! So thanks to you I have decided to apply to D.O schools as well. But thank you again for being such a terrific doctor and I hope I can be as good as you one day! Right now I am in grad school at UMDNJ-Stratford ( the D.O school). Any advice you can give on how to get into med school or how to me a good doctor in general would be most appreciated.
Thank you again!
“I am one of the first hundred patients at Digestive HealthCare. They have taken the best care of me. About 16 years ago, Dr. Accurso found stomach cancer in the early stages by being so vigilant watching an ulcer, because of this, he saved my life. Dr. Ciambotti is also another wonderful doctor. He has also taken excellent care of me. I haven’t had the opportunity to be a patients with the other doctor in the group, but I can say Dr. Accurso wouldn’t have anyone in his group he would not feel comfortable taking care of his patients. I feel very safe at Digestive HealthCare. The office staff is wonderful and very helpful.”
– Beverly Hensley
“I was very happy with the care I received at DHC. Every step of the way was explained to me making me feel very safe and well taken care of. The staff was exemplary! All initial results were handed to me on the way out with instructions and an appointment for a follow up. Very well run and caring. I will choose DHC for all my future screenings and procedures” – Catherine Berko
“Many thanks to DHC, and especially Dr. Gingold, for treating me as a “whole patient” not just a digestive issue. Acid reflux and stomach discomfort is bad enough, but was made worse by osteoporosis meds and the necessary calcium supplements. Working with the existing osteo meds prescribed by my GP, Dr. Gingold eliminated the acid reflux/stomach issues and recommended a “kinder” calcium supplement which actually worked better. Bone health improved dramatically and stomach pain is history. Now THAT’S what I call “winning”! – B.W.
“It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since I was admitted to the hospital. I know I’ve said it before, but thank you all for your wonderful care during my recovery. You were always there when I needed you, from the ER to discharge, and even now. You will all have my gratitude forever. You are the best!”
“Thank you for being so nice and helpful to my father!”
“My sincere thanks for all the patience, kindness and efficiency during my procedure at your office.”
“Tomorrow will be 10 years since you found my stomach cancer and because of that you saved my life. If you hadn’t been checking the ulcer so often I probably wouldn’t be here.”
“Thank you so much for the T.L.C. that helped me get through the colonoscopy experience. Without your help it could have been a LOT more upsetting for me. You’re the BEST! God bless you all!”
“As one of the anxious patients of Dr. Gingold, I would like to thank all of the staff and MD’s in this office setting for such good care and kindness. You guys are the most caring staff and doctors I have ever been with. Thanks so much.”
“To all the Dr’s who treated ….., our deepest thanks. To the staff our deepest thanks for your kindness. Please keep us in your prayers. He suffered a lot. We miss him terribly. Someday I pray there will be a cure for cancer so there won’t be so much suffering.”
“Dr. Accurso, please accept my sincere appreciation for ordering the CT scan during my visit to your office on Nov. 6. If you had only ordered the colonoscopy, the large cystic mass on my left ovary probably would have gone undiscovered for a long time.”
“25 Lodgepole Pines and Douglasfir Trees will be planted by the National Arbor Day Foundation in Gallatin National Forest in honor of Dr. Claudia Barghash. This gift is in celebration of excellent care…”
“It is my pleasure to recognize Dr. Ciambotti for his excellent care given to one of our patients.”
“Thank you all for seeing me on such short notice. It’s very rare these days to encounter such prompt attention.”
Drs. Accurso & Ciambotti,
Thank you for the kindness and expertise in the care of my husband. My daughters and I are very grateful.
“I have felt since first going to Dr. Accurso and the staff of DHC that they are the most professional, caring and welcoming group of health care professionals that I have encountered in many years of going to physicians. The entire staff and system are patient friendly and empathetic to the patient’s needs. Kudos to you all!” – Mark New
“After being referred to Dr. Gingold by a friend and placing my wellbeing in his hands, I quickly realized his understanding of my digestive problems has aided in my diagnosis and recovery. His care as well as that of his staff made undergoing this troubling experience bearable. From treatment in his facility to follow-up phone calls at home, I would say Dr. Gingold and his staff performed admirably and I would gladly recommend his care and treatment to any patient suffering from digestive issues.” – Lawrence B. Serra
“I would like to commend you on the services performed by your entire staff whose efforts to insure the comfort of your patients prior to, and after procedures does not go unnoticed. No doubt you know how much that means to everyone from the front office to the operating room and beyond. I would also be neglect if I did not mention the cleanliness and comfort of the entire facility from the paint colors on the walls to the reclining chairs.” – Josie Colasuonno
