Communication is key: So often patients are informed but don't hear or remember what they are told. If in doubt, ask! if not satisfied with your physician, find someone with whom you're more comfortable. All of us doctors want the best for our patients. Regarding your issue with gerd, happy to answer more specifically if you can share additional info about the extent of your disease ; what treatment(s) you've tried.
