Bladder relief due to over-sized Prostrate
Self-verified patient of Dr. Kashif Alvi - Posted on April 7th, 2018
I had a procedure called Rezum BPH treatment of prostrate (involves steam to open the prostrate) in the summer of 2017 and 6 months after the procedure I could not be happier. I was getting up during the night 4 or more times to pee and was constantly having to pee during the day, not to mention the fact it was very difficult to hold the urge to pee when that urge came. Since the Rezum procedure I can hold that urge and only get up maybe once during the night to have to pee. The procedure was done in the doctors office and was out back home in a couple of hours. The only negativity I experienced post op was the catheter which was inserted after the procedure plugged and I had to go to the ER for clearing. This happened a couple of times and occurred on a holiday weekend which was not fun at all. The urge to pee and couldn't was very uncomfortable and being in the hospital the time span to get relief was long. If I have to go through this procedure again, I would ask for the largest catheter possible to be inserted to prevent plugging. Dr. Alvi would have gotten 5 stars from this patient if I had not had the plugging problem.
Dr. Alvi gave me freedom I haven't had in years.

I had been having problems with incontinence for over 10 years. It got so bad that I couldn't go one single day with out an embarrassing accident. I had to stop doing several things that I enjoyed such as volunteering at my son's school for fear of leaking. I had been to another Dr. to seek relief from this problem and was told bladder leakage was a part of aging. I was 36 years old at the time and changing my pad 8-9 times a day. Unacceptable! During my initial visit, Dr. Alvi suggested that I have the sling procedure. I had the surgery one month later with very little discomfort. When I left the hospital I had my freedom back. The leaking has all but stopped. I am no longer having those embarrassing accidents. If you have ever suffered from incontinence you know what a life changer this is. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Alvi if you are suffering from incontinence problems. I am SO happy to have my life back!

STRONGLY suggest one read other review sites for the true side and real opinions from patients about Alvi. He is not interested in the patient, just telling them, without examination, where they are wrong in previous diagnosis. No one wants an ego for a doctor, but a properly qualified medical one. For many patients, he questions their personal medical history and other doctors' diagnosis, all without further tests or physical exam. Ego all the way! Ill mannered and an over rated ego who talks down to people as though they were dirt and had no right to bother him. That's Alvi!

Dr. Alvi performed a laparoscopic radical nephrectomy and tumor removal on my husband while our family was under an enormous amount of stress. Ultimately, Dr. Alvi and his practice were the clear choice after receiving several opinions from other urologists. Diagnosis to post-surgical care was a total of 16 days and Dr. Alvi and his staff were compassionate and driven to deliver the most exceptional care. The surgical process was clearly explained and flawlessly executed with a bright prognosis.
