At Manhattan Gastroenterology, our team of female gastroenterologists understands that female patients not only experience digestive health issues more commonly than males but they also have their own individualized experiences. Women’s digestive tracts are physiologically different than those of men and can have increased intestinal sensitivity to different stimuli that can lead to symptoms. Further, the stages of the female life reproductive cycle such as pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause can affect a woman’s digestive system and require special attention.★★★★★ Dr. Dana Zhao, MD Gastroenterologist ★★★★★ Dr. Connie Park, MD Gastroenterologist ★★★★★ Kristen Lee, MD Gastroenterologist ★★★★★ Lauren Schwartz, MD Gastroenterologist

In a traditionally male-physician-dominated field, our doctors are board-certified female gastroenterologists (GI) in our community with extensive practice experience and published original research providing quality care to both men and women.
According to published data, less than 15% of the nation’s practicing gastroenterologists are women. Our female gastroenterologists hope to be a role model for future female gastroenterologists because many women in New York City prefer an office visit with a female gastroenterologist and endoscopist or colonoscopist. As the best-in-class GI specialists, our female doctors collaborate with the caring team of female physicians at Manhattan Gastroenterology, offering insights into symptoms and, in some cases, treatments unique to women.
