Love dr Afridi!!! He’s caring and the best!!!
We have been seeing many of you via Telemedicine over the past few weeks and we wanted you to know that it is now time to see you in the office – safely. We will begin seeing patients in the office on Monday, May 18th, 2020. Over the past few weeks, we have been instituting safety protocols so that in-office patient visits can occur in the utmost possible safe environment for our patients and our staff.
We understand that you may have some questions regarding your safety while in our office. Below are the steps our office is taking to ensure the safety of our patients, our staff and our Physicians.
Unfortunately, many procedures have been canceled over the past few weeks due to the pandemic. We are in the process of reopening our surgical center but we must adhere to strict guidelines going forward. Many patients have been rescheduled to future dates. We will do our best to accommodate everyone as quickly and as efficiently as possible. ALL patients MUST have COVID-19 testing done no more than 72 hours prior to any scheduled procedure, whether at RWJ Hamilton or our surgery center. Please note that we will only do COVID-19 negative patients at our Surgery Center. You will be contacted for this testing prior to your scheduled procedure. We understand that this might be an extra step you have to take in undergoing your procedure, but this is to be in compliance with CDC guidelines and several GI societies and above all for your safety. We ask for your patience and understanding as we proceed to this next step.
Please do not hesitate to call our office with any questions or concerns at 609-586-1319.

Approximately 150,000 new cases of colorectal cancer are diagnosed every year in the United States and nearly 50,000 people die from the disease. It has been estimated that increased awareness and screening would save at least 30,000 lives each year. Colorectal cancer is highly preventable and can be detected by testing even before there are symptoms.
Colonoscopy lets your doctor examine the lining of your large intestine (colon) for abnormalities by inserting a thin flexible tube, as thick as your finger, into your anus and slowly advancing it into the rectum and colon. This instrument, called a colonoscope, has its own lens and light source and it allows your doctor to view images on a video monitor.
Upper endoscopy lets your doctor examine the lining of the upper part of your gastrointestinal tract, which includes the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum (the first portion of the small intestine). Your doctor will use a thin, flexible tube called an endoscope, which has its own lens and light source and will view the images on a video monitor.
Gastroesophageal reflux occurs when contents in the stomach flow back into the esophagus. This happens when the valve between the stomach and the esophagus, known as the lower esophageal sphincter, does not close properly.

Great staff and nice environment people treat you with respect
Saw Dr Zamir and he was professional and detailed in his diagnosis and his ongoing care has kept me a patient in their practice.
Was treated at RWJ by Dr Afridi and was happy enough with his care that I have since seen him at his office here several times. Staff is friendly and scheduling was easy.
