About Us

At Weill Cornell Medicine, patients receive expert, compassionate care from physicians who are at the forefront of medical innovation through the development of new cures, treatments and technologies.

Our nationally-recognized gastrointestinal program provides treatment for a wide range of digestive- and liver-related disorders, including:

  • Hepatitis C
  • Fatty liver
  • Liver cirrhosis
  • Liver cancer
  • Liver transplantation
  • Pancreatic and gallbladder diseases
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Crohn's disease
  • Colon cancer
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Achalasia
  • Clostridium difficile (C. diff)
  • Other intestinal infections

Our healthcare providers, including our gastroenterology and hepatology doctors in New York, create personalized care plans that incorporate proven diagnostic and therapeutic methods as well as cutting-edge procedures, like advanced interventional endoscopy, a minimally invasive procedure that allows physicians to detect and treat disorders in the digestive tract. With a pediatric gastroenterologist on staff, we are also prepared to treat children who present with gastrointestinal conditions.

Additionally, we offer the newest endoscopic therapies for obesity as well as capsule (pill) endoscopy, a new noninvasive method to take images of the digestive tract.

Patients can also receive specialized care at one of our collaborative centers, which focus on specific digestive and liver conditions:

  • The Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health, named in memory of Katie Couric's late husband, provides multidisciplinary care for gastrointestinal cancers, genetic screening for hereditary cancers and management of esophageal and motility disorders.
  • The Jill Roberts Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease provides state-of-the art treatment options for patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.
  • The Center for Liver Disease provides comprehensive care, including liver transplantation, for all forms of liver disease. It includes the Center for the Study of Hepatitis C which offers specialized treatment to patients infected with the virus.
  • The Advanced Endoscopy program provides cutting-edge minimally invasive procedures for a variety of GI, liver and pancreatic diseases, which in many cases, allows patients to avoid surgery. A new program focuses on management of obesity and fatty liver disease in conjunction with our weight loss program, our bariatric surgery program and our Center for Liver Disease team.

What Our Patients Are Saying

Talking about Ellen J. Scherl, M.D.

"Dr. Scherl Review I was referred to Dr. Ellen Scherl in 2017 by my gastroenterologist and have been her patient since. She has diligently followed my case with the utmost care. I have improved tremendously. I can’t thank her enough. In addition, she provides excellent referrals for other health issues. Recently she referred me to a nutritionist who was very helpful in answering my questions and providing excellent resources. Lastly, I must thank Crystal who I can depend on to always answer my messages."

"Dr. Samstein- is simply amazing. He explained everything and answered any questions we had. The transplant went according to plan and I am stronger everyday. Dr. Samstein checked in on me everyday I was in Cornell Hospital, answering questions and letting me know how my liver and blood results were. He has a wonderful bed side manner, making you feel very at ease, due to you being so informed about what would happen. I would highly recommend Dr. Samstein to anyone who requires a liver specialist"
