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.

Dr. Marino was knowledgeable, thorough and kind as he questioned my symptoms.
Dr Reddy is an AMAZING doctor!!! Very thorough, knowledgeable, and compassionate. Listened patiently and addressed each of my concerns. I feel like I'm visiting family at my appointments.
I felt cared for, from the check in staff to the attending nurse after my procedure. The staff was very attentive. They made me feel very comfortable. I don’t do well with anesthesia , I expressed that and I felt as if I was heard. Dr. Mayer A+. Lily, my nurse before the procedure was absolutely wonderful. The anesthesia nurse as I stated before , calmed my fears. My attending nurse post procedure was very nice . I apologize for not remembering her name, I was still a little loopy.The front desk staff is the first point of contact and she definitely was an example of the rest of the staff. Thank you very much for your service.
Your team is awesome. I was so blessed by their care for me. Thank you
Dr Herbert Mayer and his staff were excellent and informative about my condition and proposed solutions.
