About Us

“Hunterdon Gastroenterology Associates is very technology-forward, investing in new and proven diagnostic and treatment equipment and systems that make a difference in the comfort, convenience and outcomes of our procedures. This is an important reason we are leaders in the region when it comes to gastroenterology—and one of many reasons I am enjoying being the newest member of the team,” says Dr. Daruwala.

Our Doctor

Cherag Daruwala, MD

“Like many gastroenterologists, I enjoy the technological aspect of my specialty. Because of my training and experience, I am proud to have been the first gastroenterologist in Central New Jersey to offer endoscopic ultrasound. This emerging technology is quickly becoming the gold standard in the diagnosis of various gastrointestinal illnesses. With endoscopic ultrasound, we are able to get high quality information about a patient’s condition in a way that is much easier and less invasive than other diagnostic procedures.”

After completing Dr. Daruwala’s fellowship in Gastroenterology, he went on to complete training in endoscopic ultrasound and was on staff at Temple University Hospital for 3 years prior to joining Hunterdon Gastroenterology. Dr. Daruwala established the endoscopic ultrasound program at Hunterdon Medical Center.

Dr. Daruwala has been with Hunterdon Gastroenterology Associates since 2012 and has been named a NJ Top Doctor each year consecutively since 2016. He has authored numerous publications in high profile journals such as Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and Annals of Surgery. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling and spending time with his wife and 2 daughters.

    The experience was outstanding having this procedure is one that people don’t want to have but this doctor and staff almost makes you want to do it again. Thank you all for a good job.

    The most important aspect of my procedure was the certainty that all the people responsible for my care cared about me.

    I have only great things to say about my experience at Hunterdon Endosurgery Center. The staff made a not so fun procedure extremely tolerable.

    Visiting the office is like visiting family.

    While this was my first visit as a patient, my wife has had outpatient surgery before at this facility. We both are impressed with all aspects of provider care and service/courtesy and feel extremely well taken care of and look forward to returning when needed in the future.
