In New York city, we see all kinds of extreme individuals. Some would scream at you if you come within 2 inches of them while walking past, while others actually get out of the way of faster moving folks on the sidewalk. To those individuals who are extremely sensitive and feel that Dr. Aviv "pushes" or "shills" his book, with all due respect, I believe you fall into the first category. I was recommended to see Dr. Aviv, because he is regarded as literally "one of the best swallowing care" doctors in the world. This was told to me by my internist who I have seen for years. He not only helped me get rid of my acid reflux disease (I actually had to do the hard part by changing my diet-which he clearly lays out in his book-more like a meal plan) but his book is a Godsend. How else would you actually hear about the book if he didn't mention it to you? We all need to keep open minds regarding our health care professionals, but to slam one of the best because he was trying to help you get on your way to optimal health with help from a book that is without peer (in my opinion) which he took the time to write for his patients, speak perhaps more to your particular sensitivities rather that most of our reality.

I suffered with acid reflux and throat burn for a year until I learned about Dr. Aviv and his book, "Killing Me Gently from Inside." The book is excellent. I am much improved. Dr. Aviv is a lovely person, extremely knowledgeable, and very caring in my experience. I feel so fortunate to have found out about him. If you suffer from acid reflux and follow his recommended diet, you will get better.

After 10+ years of a severe cough which caused loss of voice and trouble breathing, I heard about Dr. Aviv. I have been on his low acid diet for 10 weeks. My cough is totally gone and I have lost 30 lbs. and eating healthy, something I must admit I have never done. The office staff and everyone in the office have been wonderful to deal with. He has made a believer out of me. I travel from New Jersey to see him. Well worth it. Connie S.

Dr. Aviv was also extremely rude and disrespectful to me during my visit. All because a doctor he referred me to did not do the test he wanted him to do. It was all I could do not to simply walk out of the visit. And yes, he shills for his book unbelievably. If you want people to have the book so badly, just give it to them,they're paying for a visit. Also, his billing people are incompetent. Although Dr. Aviv was part of my health plan, his billing people have been billing me for an out-of-network amount for months. No amount of trying to straighten this out has worked, and my husband and I have spent hours (along with the insurance company, which keeps trying to tell them the bill is wrong) trying to straighten the situation out. SEE ANOTHER DOCTOR!

Hi. I have been Nomanding for years in the sands of the mediocre doctors, until I arrived at Dr Avivs tent, and an immediate Hit. His professional ,elegant, focused, no nonsense, and obviously correct , and accurate prognosis was unique. He straightened , cured several of my lingering problems, within a very short time.. Highly recommended. A typical 'Right on" Israeli - Sabra process.

I will be eternally grateful to Dr. Aviv for getting me back on the road to a normal life! For a couple of years I had increasingly worse problems with coughing and throat-clearing which frequently left me unable to speak until I had rather violently gotten it to clear. Then my voice worsened to the point that people could not hear me on the phone or in person. Needless to say this was having a major impact on my life! I went to my ENT .He did a scope, told me I had LPR (of which I had never heard and which floored me, as I never experienced heartburn and in no way associated my throat symptoms with my stomach!), and said he did not believe in using medicine for this problem. Instead, he advised me to avoid the "4C's" (carbonation, caffeine, citrus, and cocktails), stop eating three hours before going to sleep, and raise the head of my bed. I did as he suggested but my voice problem worsened. After much research I saw Dr. Aviv. He knew even before scoping that there was something more amiss with my voice. He showed me the film of the scope to demonstrate that a had partial paresis of the left vocal cord in addition to the LPR and recommended I see a voice therapist as well as following carefully the LPR guidelines in his book which I already owned. He spent a good amount of time with me, answering the long list of questions I had brought very patiently. Thanks to the voice therapy and his guidelines I am now speaking just as I had before. My reflux symptoms are much better and I cannot thank him enough!
