JoinAHNfor Doc Talks about GERD

GERD occurs when the muscle between the stomach and esophagus doesnt work properly. Stomach acid flows back into the esophagus in a process called reflux, or chronic regurgitation.Taking anti-reflux medication relieves the symptoms of GERD, but doesnt heal the disease. If left untreated, GERD can lead to moresevere problems.

Come to Doc Talks to learn more about GERD treatment, risk factors and receive a free symptoms assessment.
