After practicing gastroenterology for 3 decades at the Pennsylvania Hospital what has become increasingly apparent is that the major university centers are positioning themselves to become a force to deal with when negotiating with insurance companies. This is certainly understandable given the unpredictable path of healthcare in the United States. However, what is eminently clear is that for this to happen the doctors of the next several decades will become employees of these major healthcare conglomerates. I am concerned that this phenomenon will have a significantly negative impact on the doctor patient relationship resulting in further straining of an already stressed environment. Further and more importantly the changes in a doctor's orientation that will inevitably become apparent with employment may even affect patient outcomes, the very issue we are focused on improving. I believe that preserving the doctor patient relationship is central to healing and health, and have decided not to become an employee of the major healthcare systems. The mission of Aronchick Gastroenterology Inc. is to provide expert care through highly skilled endoscopic techniques, accurate diagnostic capabilities and experienced therapeutic modalities developed through 3 decades of practice, all of this in an environment of personalized attention.

I had a great experience! Great bedside manor! A dr that actually listened!
Great first consultation. Very speedy. Arrived 15 minutes early and was seen 3 minutes later.
I always feel safe. He is more than qualified and has a professional calming bedside manner.
He addressed all of my concerns and put my mind at ease!
It was a great experience, Dr. Aronchick very professional and expert as well... The staff are very friendly and the health care providers are very professional and friendly as well.. Dr. Aronchick is highly recommended and also the Wills Surgical Center where I had my investigations done.
This was my first visit. I'll be more equipped to give an opinion after my next visit. He is very professional and a very likable man.
Took his time and listened to me.
i have seen many GIs and I really like Dr Aronchick. He is direct, to the point, and listens to patients suggestions.
So far so good! We have some appointments and procedures in the future but initial visit was great!
Excellent, professional, personable Chuck F.
More thorough and caring than any of my other doctors that I have been going to for the last 1 1/2 years. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Even better than my primary.
Very pleased. Diagnosed my problem right away.
I have been a patient of Dr. Aronchick for over 30 years. He is knowledgeable, attentive and a very good doctor, solving many difficult gastrointestinal problems for me. I highly recommend him. And the fact that he uses Zoc Doc makes being his patient all the better. I see what's available and can schedule my appointment then and there.
Professional and pleasant, as always!
Dr. Aronchick saved my life. He was the first doctor to take my symptoms seriously after almost 5 years of symptoms and no help from my primary care. He ordered a colonoscopy and endoscopy right away, and found stage III colon cancer. He referred to me to the best surgeon for the job. The continuity of care is unparalleled. He is a single private practice and you get care above and beyond what you get in larger offices with too many patients. LOVE Dr. Aronchick and could never thank him enough for saving me!!
I think he is a good dr. I hope he can help my husband with his stomach issues. He is very reassuring to us that he will be ok. and there is hope. He made us feel so much better.
Dr. Aronchick correctly diagnosed and treated me for a healed gastric ulcer 26 years ago. So when the same symptoms grew more serious after a recent surgery, I went back to him. I had confidence in him in him then and do now.
Dr. Aronchick was very nice and asked rhe right questions. I was also able to quickly schedule further testing. But my appointment was at 1:30 and I was seen at 2:40pm.
My wife and I trust Dr Aronchick. That might be the best complement one can pay a physician.
Down to earth yet professional. A Dr u want on your side if you are suffering. Compassion, empathy without being maudlin.
Dr. Aronchick has been extremely helpful. He's been there when I need him. I trust him with treating my complex problems and am grateful that he is easily accessible.
The reason I am leaving a bad review is because it was impossible to schedule a follow up appointment with this doctor.
I was seen right away for my appointment and Dr Aronchick was very patient as he listened to my issues. I had a follow up question and texted him and he responded right away. I was pleased with my initial visit.
Very professional, and answered all my questions.
Dr. Aronchick was very professional with me and did not keep me waiting long for my appointment. He was thorough with his questioning and examination and listened to what I had to say. Overall, a very pleasant experience.
Great Craig paid great attention to the problem Nd discussed in terms that I could clearly understand
Dr. Aronchick is an incredible doctor. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable of his field; he is also highly concerned about the physical and emotional well-being of his patients and the effects an illness has on their entire family. He freely gives patients his cell phone number and encourages them to call or e-mail him with any questions/concerns. He cares a lot about his patients and it shows; it's truly a privilege to be under his care.
First visit at new facility - GREAT doctor.
He is an exceptional doctor and a compassionate human being. I've known him for 20 years and have always felt safe and cared for with every issue I've had.
Dr Aronchick listened carefully and made sure he understand my complicated medical history. I loved that he takes you personally from the waiting room into the exam room. He had sensible suggestions and I felt heard. He's my 6th gastro in Philly. And I will continue to see him.
Great Doc. No nonsense, straightforward manner. Knows his specialty.
Superior doc in every way. If you have a need for a great gastro-guy, you'd be very fortunate to have Dr. Aronchick as your resource.
Very professional and friendly.
I feel like I'm in great hands with my medical care.
Very nice dr very easy to talk to and well knowledged and I felt at ease and comfortable to schedule and appt for my procedure ??
Fantastic doctor, his bedside manner was very reassuring and he is very direct and to-the-point in discussing symptoms and going over treatment options and potential issues. I went in for a consultation and then for a recommended colonoscopy, he did the procedure and I felt very good the whole time. His instructions and follow-ups are excellent too, highly recommended.
He is a very nice doctor, he performs procedures between appointments which make you wait for your appointment. If you have an appointment better have some extra time
Really nice dr who came up with a number of different reasons for my condition. Further testing needed. Highly recommend him!
Extremely pleased. As he checked my vitals, he noticed something was not normal. Immediately addresses the issue and sent me to the Emergency Room.
This was my first visit. Doctor was pleasant and patient. The office is nice, clean and easily accessible from public transit. His assistant called me the day beforehand and was responsive and prompt when I asked her to double check that the doc was in my health insurance network.
It was very quick all the check up i expected i didn't get it. I have to visit another location before i received those testing and treatment.
Dr. Aronchick is an incredible doctor. He is empathetic and genuinely cares about your well-being. He is highly respected in his field-the best of the best. Dr. Aronchick is an excellent diagnostician; he knew exactly what was wrong with me after at least five other doctors missed it. He always takes time to educate you about your health issues and makes sure that you have time to ask any questions you may have. I have recommended him to many of my friends, and they have all raved about him and his medical expertise. These are just a few of the many reasons that I would highly recommend Dr. Aronchick to anyone.
Went very well.
Nice clean office, pleasant atmosphere, great staff
Thorough, straight forward. Got me the answers I needed after 3 visits after working for months and months with other gastroenterologists. Highly reccomended!
no waiting... quick appt.. answered all my questions...
This appointment was for my mom. She was in and out of the office in 30 minutes! I made the appointment for her online this morning and completed all the new patient paperwork online as well before she arrived. She was seen in less than 5 minutes and Dr. Aronchick spent about 25 minutes with her. She said he was thorough, kind, and caring. My brother went with my mom to the appointment and he concurred that Dr. Aronchick was wonderful. It could not have been easier to schedule this appointment and we are thrilled with the results.
Great. The doctor was very considerate and explained everything. Excellent experience
He is very personable, takes time to listen and came up with a plan in which I felt comfortable with and he asked for my input in the plan. I definitely feel comfortable In his care.
no nonsense, professional
Very attentive, down to earth. Have a long battle with Crohn's disease all my life so I dread seeing new specialists and having to re-tell my whole store. Dr. Aronchick made it very easy, like I was talking to my father, very caring and sympathetic and understanding...you can tell he has been doing this for a long time. i am very happy with my decision. The last thing he said to me when I left the offiice was "Don't worry, we are going to take good care of you here". And I believe him!
Very professional...very attentive with a great bedside manner.
Great physician. The wait times are way too long (1hr 15min for me today), but I realized that if you just show up early, you can have your appointment on time by signing into the sheet sooner. Bring a book.
great doctor, with great bedside manner
Very good visit. Wait time was a bit long, but otherwise excellent.
extremely pleased and very excited that he has directed me in finding the best way to resolve my problem.
I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Aronchick through ZocDoc and completed all new patient registration online. When I got to the office for my appointment, they had no record of the forms I took the time to complete and I had to complete them again by hand. The appointment was fine, although Dr. Aronchick didn't seem like the best doctor. Since then, I've attempted to contact the doctor on numerous occasions and it's essentially impossible. His number always goes to voicemail (his assistant Donna) who never returns calls. The one time I was lucky enough to have the doctor call me back, he had no record of ever seeing me even. That didn't stop him from writing me a new prescription at my suggestion over the phone. The way his office is run is almost comical.
He was wonderful the first visit. The second visit I was asked to move my appointment from 1:00 pm until 1:30. At 2:00 pm he came to the waiting room and said he would be another minute. At 2:00 I left.
I wasn't overly impressed with this visit. The staff there especially made it all worse. The receptionist had a lot of trouble with her English and booked a follow-up visit for me for a procedure that neither the doctor nor myself were aware of. She didn't quite get this. She seemed to be fumbling with figuring out receipts and how much I should pay. The doctor was good. I saw him in what looked like a recovery room and a makeshift desk. I can look beyond all that if the doctor is good and his advice to me was pretty good. It's just that if the staff present themselves in such a manner, I question what will happen to me during a procedure.
Dr. Aronchick is a superb doctor - highly skilled, very intelligent, intuitive and caring. I would recommend him to anyone.
I always appreciate Dr Aronchick! Office is easy to get to, people are friendly, and no wait. Thank you
The visit was fine and pretty quick however there was an extremely long wait to be seen and he seemed unaware that I even had an appointment (he ended up seeing me in between other procedures being performed that day). Also does not take any credit cards which would have been nice to know ahead of time.
He is one fantastic doctor.
Great! He often does procedures and sees other patients in between, so a wait is likely. Very knowledgeable and explains things well.
INFORMATIVE AND HELPFUL
DR was great.
This is long overdue. I visited Dr. Aronchick for a simple concern. He was friendly and professional. He immediately put me at ease for my concern and I was in and out quickly. What was more impressive is that before I left his office, he told me he wasn't charging me for the visit when he learned I was an uninsured part-time teacher. What an amazing and compassionate person who showed me in the few minutes I met with him how much he truly cares about his patients.
