Acid Reflux

Acid Reflux, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease or “GERD” is one of the most common reasons that people visit their primary care provider. GERD typically presents with a burning sensation that starts in the stomach and radiates up the chest. Some people may also have a bitter taste in the back of their throat. Still others may experience difficulty swallowing, nausea, chest pain or a chronic cough. Learn more >
