Richard J. Arrigo, DO
Board Certified Gastroenterology Specialist, Richard J. Arrigo, DO speaks both English and Spanish.
“I like to think my approach is different from others. My bedside manner is very important to me. When taking a social history, I like to know personal details about my patients so that I can see the big picture. Most importantly, I LISTEN. I truly want to get an understanding of what my patients are telling me and I want them to know that I am truly hearing them. I try to explain things in a way they can understand.”
“I hope to give my patients an answer to their problem and perhaps a cure or a way to control their chronic medical condition so they can live a better quality of life. I hope to give my patients confidence that they are in good hands.”
“Prior to joining Hunterdon Gastroenterology, I was in practice for 2 years (2011-2013) with the Liver Transplant program in Newark, NJ. There I managed many patients with severe liver disease, Cirrhosis and all its complications. I have experience managing Fatty Liver disease and NASH, Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B, Alcohol related liver disease, auto-immune related liver conditions, and metabolic liver conditions such as hemochromatosis and drug-induced liver injury. I have training in both Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) and Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). I have a particular interest in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis). I also have training in Bariatric Endoscopy and placement of Non-Surgical Intra-Gastric Balloons for weight loss.”
