Who I am

Hello, and welcome to Mill Basin Medical. My name is Dr. Alexander Shapsis, and it’s my privilege and honor to care for your gastroenterological needs.

I was born in Moldova and immigrated to the United States with my family in 1991. I completed my undergraduate studies at New York University and medical school and training at SUNY Downstate School of Medicine.

My philosophy when it comes to treating patients is that the physician and patient are in a partnership together. I believe that patients deserve to be fully heard and treated with respect and dignity. I will listen to your concerns and recommend treatment based on the results of my examination and your individual needs. When testing is required, I will share with you why I believe the test is needed and what I hope to learn by performing the test. I will work with you and your insurance company to ensure that your care is covered as much as possible. I also take the time to explain your diagnosis in detail, using terminology that you can relate to.

I chose to work in the Bergen Beach/Mill Basin area because I love the atmosphere of this area. The people here are down to earth, friendly and caring. They go out of their way to care for their neighbors and friends. I love working with the people who work hard to make this neighborhood the pleasant and caring place that it is.

What can I do for you?

Gastrointestinal problems are common, but that doesn’t make them any less frightening or uncomfortable if you are the one experiencing them. I care about how your symptoms are affecting your life and well-being, and I want to work with you to determine what the problem is and the best way to treat it.

I diagnose and treat issues affecting the oral cavity, esophagus, stomach, intestines, rectum, liver and gall bladder. I use various forms of technology such as endoscopy, x-ray and specialized blood tests to help me reach a diagnosis. Once we reach a diagnosis, I prescribe treatment in consultation with you, the patient. Your opinions matter to me, and I take great satisfaction in the trusting relationships I build with my patients.
