About

Welcome: Quality Care, Comfort and Convenience

Schenectady Gastroenterology Associates was founded by Dr. Joseph Cavallaro in 1971. The practice expanded into Saratoga, with the addition of Dr. Arthur Ostrov, in 1981 and changed names to Saratoga Schenectady Gastroenterology Associates. Over the years, the group has expanded to include seventeen gastroenterologists, and seven midlevel practitioners. We have three convenient outpatient locations for consultations in Schenectady, Saratoga and in our newly renovated Burnt Hills locations.  We perform procedures at Ellis and Saratoga hospitals as well our state of the art outpatient endoscopy center in Burnt Hills.

Our mission is to provide comprehensive care of the digestive tract in a courteous, efficient and compassionate manner. Our standard of care is not limited to the diagnosis, treatment and management of gastrointestinal disorders, but also understands and addresses the psychological and social dimensions of patients and their families.

If you are already scheduled to visit Saratoga Schenectady Gastro Associates we recommend you take a look at the Office Forms section of our website to help you prepare for your appointment. If you are already a patient, please take the time to review the patient handouts on various gastroenterology disorders. If you do not have a visit planned, we invite you to come see us soon.

Saratoga Schenectady Gastroenterology Associates is a participating provider for Medicare, Medicaid and most healthcare plans offered in the state of New York
