At Doctors Inlet Internal Medicine, we are pleased to provide acid reflux treatment to our patients who struggle with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

What is GERD?

GERD is a condition where the acid in the stomach flows back into the esophagus on a frequent basis. The backwash of this acid is commonly referred to as acid reflux, and can irritate the esophageal lining.

Most GERD symptoms consist of difficulty swallowing, heartburn, food or liquid regurgitation, and/or the sensation of a lump in the throat. However, some patients only experience GERD symptoms at night, also known as nighttime acid reflux. These patients may also experience a chronic cough, new or worsening asthma, laryngitis, and/or disrupted sleep.

How we can help

We strive to help our patients experience optimal quality of life, and that includes managing the symptoms of GERD. Most patients benefit from a combination of lifestyle changes and over-the-counter medication to manage their discomfort, though more severe cases may require prescription medication and/or surgery.

We will work together to find the right treatment option and lifestyle adaptations to help you experience relief. For more information about our services or to schedule an appointment, contact us today at .
