I am Dr. Jules Garbus. I currently live in Long Island with my wife and two children. Actually, I grew up in Long Island and most of my family and friends still live here. I am really proud to practice medicine here, in an area that has afforded me so much opportunity to my life. I did my undergraduate training at Brandeis University in Massachusetts. I went to Chicago Medical School where I graduated with Alpha Omega Alpha as part of Medical Honor Society. I did my general Surgery training in North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset. Upon completion I went to Cleveland Clinic in Florida where I finished my training in colorectal surgery.
I currently hold academic appointment as Clinical System Professor at Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine and Stony Brook School of Medicine. In addition to my medical practice, I really enjoy my role as educator and teacher. I work with residents, students and fellows, and participate in nurturing the future of medicine. Outside work, my real passion is spending time with my family, whether it's going on vacation or just spending time outdoors with all the wonderful sites that New York has to offer. We also enjoy sports, whether it be going to a game or just taking tennis lessons together as a family.
Having grown up with a brother and a mother with colorectal diseases, I think really steered me into colon and rectal surgery. I felt that if I understood their diseases better and I can appreciate what they were dealing with I'd be able to help them in the future. I feel what we built in here at CRSSNY is a comfortable environment with caring and compassionate staff, knowledgeable, experienced surgeons that work together as a team and I am happy to be part of.
