    Jersey City Medical Center’s Gastroenterology Division is headed by Dr. Robert Spira. A graduate of NYU Medical School and board-certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology, he is an expert endoscopist and skilled clinician. He has been a dynamic and forward thinking leader for the division and has successfully expanded services to treat the full range of gastrointestinal conditions encompassing both diagnostic and interventional endoscopic procedures.

    With an eye to the future, Dr. Spira has implemented a Gastroenterology Fellowship Program at Jersey City Medical Center to train the next generation of physicians.

    Dr. Spira’s practice combines medical expertise with a strong emphasis on the specific needs of each and every patient. This guiding principle is echoed in a favorite quote from Dr. Oliver Sacks “there is only one cardinal rule, one must always listen to the patient.”

    A frequent recipient of regional and national best doctor’s rankings, Dr. Spira focuses on research in the field, publishing numerous original papers in peer review journals.
