Message from Dr. Jonathan Erber:

Both my father and his parents served as my early mentors in medicine. I am proud to continue the tradition of the practice of medicine into the 21st Century in nearly the same location it began in 1945. My studies in medicine led to me Israel, where I attended Tel-Aviv University, Sackler Faculty of Medicine. Studying in one of the world’s most exciting and interesting cities, both socially and culturally and arguably one of the world’s leading countries in Science and Technology, helped prepare me for the sound practice of medicine in our diverse community here in Brooklyn. I completed internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2005, and my Gastroenterology fellowship at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in 2008 where I also served as Chief Fellow.

After completing my studies, I entered into Private Practice in 2008 and maintain privileges at Mount Sinai-Beth Israel Brooklyn, NY Methodist Hospital and Maimonides Medical where I was also a member of the teaching faculty until 2015. Teaching is essential to the practice of medicine and I continue to teach and mentor Medical Students and Fellows at NY Methodist and Maimonides and through various activities with the ACG, BGA and as a Clinical Assistant Professor at SUNY Downstate.

My clinical and research interests in Gastroenterology and Endoscopy include:

  • Endoscopic Muscosal Resection
  • Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection
  • Capsule Endoscopy
  • Small bowel Enteroscopy
  • Colon Cancer Screening
  • New endoscopic technologies and imaging
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Celiac Disease
