Tell your primary: Care doctor about your persistent symptoms ; your frustration to determine if you need referral to a pediatric gastroenterologist. The " pedes gi" doctor will determine if you need a procedure in which he uses a tube to visualize your esophagus, stomach ; part of the small bowel while you're asleep. The results of that procedure, (endoscopy) help determine the need for surgery ; other treatments.
