Dr. Joseph J Zerega has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

I recently revisited Dr. Zerega after not seeing him in ten years, can you believe he remembered me? He has great bedside manners and I would tell/recommend him to anyone in need of the expertise as he has.

Inconsiderate doctor

Dr.Zerega calls your home on Sunday mornings with an automated message reminding you of your visit which might not be for two more days. On Monday, an office staff person calls you to remind you again. I asked the staff not to call me with an automated call on a Sunday at 9:00 A.M. But they called me again on a Sunday at that time before my next appointment which was for that Tuesday. The doctor is more considered about filling his schedule than being considerate of his patients. Also waited almost one hour after appointment time to be seen.
