GERD treatment options at Nuvance Health: Why Choose Us?
You receive services from digestive health doctors (gastroenterologists) specializing in heartburn and upper GI diseases. We detect and treat reflux and GERD in earlier stages, lowering the risk of complications. Highlights of our program include:
Nuvance Health is home to experienced gastroenterologists who frequently care for patients with acid reflux and GERD. Many doctors completed additional training through fellowships enabling us to deliver specialized care that reflects your needs. Learn more about how we treat esophagus and upper GI disease.
Gastroenterologists take time to get to know you as an individual and how reflux or GERD symptoms affect your life. We often diagnose the conditions based on this information alone. For more severe cases, you may need a special test (upper endoscopy) to assess damage to the esophagus.
Many patients feel better with nonsurgical treatments. Care may include medications that help your stomach produce less acid. These drugs work differently than antacids giving you more chances for relief. You also have access to nutrition and lifestyle counseling making it easier to adopt habits that reduce reflux frequency and severity.
