and has brought back personalized gastrointestinal care to the Jersey shore.
**Where Patients Come First**
Doctor Steven A. Gorcey founded Monmouth Gastroenterology in 1991 and has been practicing in Monmouth County for 30 years. In 2019 he left the practice to form Monmouth Digestive Health located in Eatontown, N.J..
After earning his medical degree from Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University, Dr. Gorcey did his internal medicine residency at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, and completed his fellowship in gastroenterology at Winthrop University Hospital in 1991. During fellowship Dr. Gorcey was an assistant clinical instructor for Stony Brook Medical School.
He served as chief of the division of Gastroenterology at Monmouth Medical Center, and chief of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. In addition, he was assistant clinical professor at Drexel University Medical school and Robert Wood Johnson, with teaching responsibilities for both medical students and medical/surgical residents. He also served as chief of advanced endoscopy at Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem for one month in 2014.
While routine colon cancer screening and upper endoscopy comprise the majority of Dr. Gorcey’s procedures, he also has special interests in some of the most advanced interventional endoscopic procedures performed in the world today. Along with being an expert in biliary endoscopy (ERCP - Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography), which is a way of dealing with bile duct disorders through the mouth, Dr. Gorcey is one of a few select physicians performing endoscopic gastric sleeves for obesity, and revision of gastric bypass and gastric sleeves using the Apollo Overstitch endoscopic suturing system. Being an expert in esophageal disease, Dr. Gorcey was the first doctor in the state of New Jersey to perform BARRX radio frequency ablation for Barrett's esophagus, a non-invasive way of removing pre-cancerous tissue from the esophagus. He was also the first in NJ to perform POEM - per oral endoscopic myotomy for Achalasia . His ability to manage swallowing disorders and Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease, as well as esophageal cancer is second to none. Having a close relationship with the advanced laparoscopic surgeons at Monmouth Medical Center allows him to endoscopically remove large pre-cancerous tumors of the colon, stomach and duodenum that most others would refer for surgical resection, and attack complex surgical problems like fistula closure and leak repair with novel combinations of operative endoscopic and laparoscopic approaches. Dr Gorcey performs his more complex procedures at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch NJ and the majority of his routine outpatient endoscopies and colonoscopies at Advanced Endoscopy in Eatontown NJ, a state of the art ambulatory surgical center. His philosophy is treating patients in a down to earth manner with courtesy, friendliness , and respect, utilizing the most advanced treatment options, techniques and equipment, with a pursuit for painless endoscopy, easy colonoscopy preparation, and the lowest complication rates achievable. He truly cares about his patients , which is the main reason why he opened his new solo practice. Dr. Gorcey and his responsive staff can now give the patients the time and personal care they deserve. Once patients experience "concierge" gastroenterology they will never go back to a group practice .
Dr Gorcey started Monmouth Gastroenterology in 1991. The practice slowly grew from 1 to 6 physicians over the past 30 years. Then it joined multiple other practices to form a super group He is returning now to a one man practice in order to get back to basics and be able to give patients the personal approach they deserve, with the confidence that when they need their doctor it will always be him, and not a covering physician who is unfamiliar with them. Over the past thirty years Dr Gorcey has accumulated experience that can't be read in a book or heard in a lecture hall. He wants to pass that experience on to his patients in his new practice at Monmouth Digestive Health. It is time to take Gastroenterology to the next level of excellence." If you are not moving forwards, then you are moving backwards".
Most doctors look for diseases when there are none, over-test, and under diagnose. When the tests don't show anything, they tell the patients they have "irritable bowel". They then hand out "band aid" medications for symptomatic relief without ever understanding and fixing the core of the problem. Dr Gorcey has a different approach. In his experience the majority of digestive problems that affect patients are NOT disease related, but rather alterations of normal physiology. This allows a more natural treatment plan including dietary recommendations and over the counter supplements, which cure the problem rather than cover it up.
