David A Talenti, MD

"I have had the opportunity to teach countless Physicians-in-training and Medical Students for more than 20 years. It has been truly rewarding to show them the many nuances of gastrointestinal disease, the newest cutting edge technology, and many other skills involved in the practice of medicine. Out of all of that, the most important thing I hope that I have taught them is to put patients first......always. It is the heart of the matter and it is how we practice at Northeastern Gastroenterology Associates. We constantly strive to remain where the most cutting-edge technology and up to date medicine intersect with great compassion and warmth. A very exciting place to be."

"If I can touch another life especially at a time when they are most vulnerable, and shepherd them through the storm with not only state of the art medicine, but compassion--I have won, but more importantly, so has my patient. To be privileged enough to have that patient's trust, makes me truly blessed."
