Meet Dr. Braunstein


Dear prospective patient,

I am proud to have served the Long Island community for over 25 years and to have thousands of colonoscopy screening exams!


cropped dr. bI have chosen to remain in my own solo practice because it is important to me that I personally manage every stage of their evaluation and treatment. As a solo practitioner, I also can take the extra time I believe is needed to do an especially meticulous and thorough colonoscopy examination (since studies have proven that longer examination times result in increased polyp detection).



It’s very important to me that my patients not only receive the highest quality medical care, but that they also feel comfortable and at-ease at every stage.

I hope you will call my office so that we can begin to discuss your digestive health.



Michael Braunstein, M.D.
