Specialties

Dr. Edward M Brettholz has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

The Best

Was referred to him by my internist when my liver enzyme levels were high. He is the most caring and personable doctor I've ever been to. He is knowledgeable and and explores all possibilities.

One Star

By far the worst doctor and staff I have ever had to deal with. He misdiagnosed me with a serious disease and refused to believe that my medication was making me worse. His staff read me test results incorrectly, I later found out the staff is not qualified to read the results. I would call about three times without a call back, even in emergency situations. Finally, when I brought this up to dr. Brettholz he said that I am not his most important patient because he has patients that are dying and I am merely suffering from what he believed to be colitis with severe pain. Oh, and he Told me my diagnosis over the phone, explained that my medication had NO side effects (very wrong) and would not answer my questions because he didn't want the phone call to last too long. I can keep going, please don't risk your health by trusting this doctor or his staff.
