About Atlantic Surgical Group

Atlantic Surgical Group is a multi-specialty group made up of general, laparoscopic and colorectal surgeons. The practice was formed when Dr. Aron Gornish joined Drs. David Averbach and Mark Schwartz in practice in 1990 in their office in Long Branch, New Jersey. Atlantic Surgical Group added colorectal skills to the group with the additions of Dr. Glenn Parker in 1992 and Dr. Thomas Lake in 2002. Dr. Jeffrey Lin joined the practice in 2011 and Dr. Tizio joined in 2014. ASG is capable of handling all aspects of general, colorectal, cancer, and breast surgery.
