Carnegie Hill Endoscopy, a clinical affiliate of Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center, is a 15,000 square foot state of the art Endoscopy Center that opened on March 5, 2012.
We currently have 24 doctors making up 12 different practices located in various parts of Manhattan. We have admitting privileges and teaching appointments independently at several hospitals including Beth Israel, Mount Sinai, Lenox Hill, Cornell Weill, and New York University. Members of Carnegie Hill Endoscopy include nationally known experts in the fields of inflammatory bowel disease, colon cancer, gastrointestinal bleeding and endoscopy. Our members include a past president of the New York Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and the New York Academy of Gastroenterology; former co-directors or directors of Endoscopy Units at Mt. Sinai Hospital and Medical Center and NYPH-Weill Cornell; and, a previous member of the American College of Gastroenterology Board of Governors. Collectively they have written over 100 scientific papers and 27 chapters and have authored 4 books in the field of gastrointestinal endoscopy. Several of our members are listed in the Best Doctors of America and many have been listed as Top Doctors in Manhattan. Our members have appeared on numerous television programs including NBC and CBS Nightly Newscasts, ABC’s 20/20, and NBC’s The Today Show.
The physicians of Carnegie Hill Endoscopy represent private medicine. They are the best of private doctors and they wish to practice medicine according to what they feel is the best manner for their patients. The quality of our care is of the utmost to them. They have built a state of the art endoscopy center that is recognized as the quintessential center. Carnegie Hill Endoscopy was the first Center in NYC to make the FUSE endoscope system its standard of care. In April of 2015, the Center outfitted all 5 of its procedure rooms with FUSE. We know that great care builds great practices.
The mission of Carnegie Hill Endoscopy is excellence in the delivery of patient care, and education in diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. We will serve all person in need of Endoscopic Services, regardless of age, color, race, creed, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, disability or payer source.

Carnegie Hill Endoscopy is committed to helping eradicate colon cancer in our community. We realize that colon cancer does not choose its victims by the ability to pay. We are the first private ambulatory surgical center to affiliate with a Federally Qualified Health Center to provide free screening care to those without insurance; providing these services for free (including anesthesia and pathology services). We work with a variety of centers throughout the 5 boroughs.
There are clear benefits of these private-public partnerships as we try to close the healthcare disparity gap. As former Commissioner of Health, Richard Daines, wrote “Ambulatory surgical centers can also be an access point for medically-underserved communities …to provide access to ambulatory surgery services for its Medicaid and uninsured patients.”
Carnegie Hill Endoscopy prides itself on being able to provide its patients with a world class experience. We maintain this level of excellence by participating in the GI Quality Improvement Consortium (GIQuIC). GIQuIC is a non-profit educational and scientific organization, cooperatively created by the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) and the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE). This registry allows patient care data to be collected and systematically analyzed, creating benchmarks which identify weakness in care and allow for quality improvement initiatives here at our center. This real-time data is collected from physicians in hospitals, universities, ambulatory surgery centers, and office-based endoscopy units nationwide. Participation is not required, but it’s a demonstration to Carnegie Hill Endoscopy’s dedication to improving the quality of our patient care.
