What is chronic care management?
Chronic care management (CCM) is a specific care management service that provides coverage for patients who have two or more chronic diseases, allowing for an ongoing relationship with their individual medical care team. This program involves developing a comprehensive care plan, interactive remote communication and management (usually over the phone), management of medication, and coordination of care between providers.
Chronic care management is offered at Metropolitan Gastroenterology Associates and is helpful for individuals in terms of continuous health and wellness support. It also enables greater access to the appropriate healthcare resources, enhanced communication with care team members, fewer emergency room visits and hospital stays or readmissions, and greater engagement in one's healthcare.

My recent visit Since I mistakenly went on the wrong day for my visit with Dr. Silver, the Staff greet me nicely, letting me know that I was a week early, but they could accommodate me that day to see another doctor. That was very nice of her to suggest that. It did save me a second trip. The doctor's nurse practitioner assistant check me out. I just want to say all the staff the Metropolitan Gastroenterology was excellent. Thank You
My experience at this was good . The N P tile me to take Citrucell for my problem and so far it’s working out very well .
If you want a GI Physician who is understanding, listens to your concerns, detailed and extremely passionate about the care he provides to his patients… go see Dr Herbert Mayer. I’m not saying this because I’ve been with him for years. His bedside manners are impeccable.
Dr. Marino was very polite and explained everything about the procedure.
My doctor is very concerned about his patients. He makes sure his patients are well taken care of. The staff are very important & informative.
