Specialties

Dr. Zamir S Brelvi 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.

Patient

I too was shocked to see some serious & exceptional feedback about this doctor. I had GERD for more than 7 years and constipation (IBS) for 6 months until I met him. When I met him for the first time, he asked me to do Ultrasound, complete blood test and started off with medication. He then did Endoscopy and Colonoscopy. In the Endoscopy document, it was clearly mentioned that I had GERD and Hiatus Hernia. He was just treating me for GERD but haven't suggested anything for Hiatus Hernia. When I asked him, he mentioned that this will go away and not to worry. In the Colonoscopy report, he had mentioned that I am having hemerroids but didn't treat me for that nor suggested any medication. In addition, he gave Linzess samples and asked me to take immediately after food. I took that for 2 months and 12 days which resulted in diarrhea and lost 15 kgs in just 3 months. Every time I used to ask him that why am I loosing weight and he would just ignore stating this is your normal weight. When he prescribed me (Linzess) and I bought that pharmacy, it was clearly mentioned that I need to take that in empty stomach. I immediately called him and spoke and he changed his words saying he didn't ask me to take it after food. When I used to visit him every 15-21 days I used to tell him that I am loosing too much of water from my body because of diarrhea. He used to console me saying this is your normal weight. There were few trainee doctors' around him who would listen to what he says to the patients most of the times when I visited his clinic. I became anemic started getting stressed out. He started prescribing stress relieving drugs. I consulted this guy for more than 7 months and didn't have a solution for my problem. I then had to get released from my project and returned to India. I got treated for my constipation within 2 months. Now I have to undergo Laproscopic Fundoplication for treatment of Hiatus Hernia and GERD. I had undergone such a pain with this guy and would not recommend anyone. Please do not go to this guy as he is not a doctor. I don't know how he got the NJ certificate for being Top 10 doctors. He will just keep dragging you and won't resolve your health problems. Please do not go.........it's my humble request.

Dr. Brelvi is a HACK

I was shocked to see positive reviews here. He asked me the same questions several times; I actually considered the fact that he might be high. He rushed me out the door and did not solve my medical issue. He did, however, write several prescriptions for drugs I didn't need. Choose another doctor... ANY other doctor.
