September 23, 2020 — Gastroenterologist Michael Demyen, MD has joined the Englewood Health Physician Network and Englewood Hospital. Dr. Demyen’s clinical interests include colon cancer screening and prevention, functional diseases of the esophagus, nutrition and the intestinal microbiome, and liver disease. He joins the Park Medical Group and welcomes new patients to his practice, in Bergenfield, Harrington Park, and Tenafly.
“I am excited to join The Park Medical Group and develop productive and lasting relationships with patients,” says Dr. Demyen. “Problems in the GI tract can be complicated and lead to diminished quality of life. In addition, patients are sometimes reluctant to speak about traditionally private issues. My goals are to listen and connect with patients so we can discuss these issues together and try to find the simplest and least invasive ways to resolve these problems and restore that quality of life.”
“As our network continues to grow, we are very excited to welcome Dr. Demyen to our team of renowned specialists and providers,” said Dr. Stephen Brunnquell, president of the Englewood Health Physician Network. “His expertise in gastroenterology will help ensure that our patients have access to leading care in their own backyard.”
Dr. Demyen is board certified in gastroenterology and internal medicine. He received his MD from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ)-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (now Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School). He did an internal medicine residency at UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School and was chief resident at East Orange VA Medical Center, after which he did a gastroenterology fellowship, also at UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School.
