The new Hudson Valley Center for Digestive Health

Hudson Valley Hospital Center has joined with five local GI physicians, David Genn, MD; Herman Kleinbaum, MD; Mitchell Josephs, MD; David Lin, MD; and Eric Teitel, MD to open a new Digestive Health Center that offers patients a central location for state of the art testing and diagnosis of digestive health issues.

Digestive Health Center The new 4,500 square foot space includes an endoscopic ambulatory surgery center with two procedure rooms.  At the endoscopy center physicians will perform endoscopies, colonoscopies and PH monitoring and testing for reflux disease and other gastrointestinal conditions using the latest technology available. The center is conveniently located between the physicians’ practices and the hospital and offers free parking.








“I woke up and it was done”


Here is what a patient of gastroenterologist Eric Teitel, MD, Director of the GI Physiology Lab, had to say about his testing experience:


Robert Vitolo had suffered from acid reflux disease for many years. Medications were no longer effective. At Hudson Valley Hospital Center's new GI Physiology Lab, Robert's gastroenterologist Dr. Eric Teitel was able to quickly determine the severity of his disease and whether or not he was a candidate for a minimally invasive procedure that might relieve his pain.

"It took maybe 15 or 20 minutes and there was absolutely no pain,'' said Robert. "I woke up and it was done, and there was no discomfort afterwards. Dr. Teitel was very impressive."
