Dr. Craig Aronchick, MD

Gastroenterologist, Internist

Professional statement

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.

The whole visit felt impersonal, from the surgery center office, to his bedside manner. I also didn’t appreciate the doctor referring to me as “Son”. He barely asked questions or examined me before pressuring me to schedule a colonoscopy.

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 coloncancer. 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!!

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 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 freelygives 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.

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.

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 meafter 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.
