I was referred to Dr. Buckley after having Upper GI and learning that I had a Hiatal Hernia and evidence of acid reflux. Dr. Buckley answered my questions and understood that I did not want to be on medications for GERD the rest of my life. He explained my options and what would be best for my situation. I went with the Nissan Fundaplication option. He explained the procedure, the side effects and how I would feel afterwards. I was taking Prilosec daily and sometimes Tums as well to reduce the pain I was feeling from the acid. I am very happy that I went with the Nissan and after 2 weeks post-op, I was eating soft foods but I was able to introduce fish and pasta into my diet and at 4 weeks I was slowly introducing other foods that I enjoy. At 6 weeks post-op, I have had steak!! I eat smaller bites, feel fuller faster but I feel great and have not had a day of pain since the day of my surgery. I strongly recommend Dr. Buckley for a consultation and if you decide the procedure.
Dr. Buckley is an amazing doctor! #nationaldoctorsday2015 #virtualflower1
