GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease)

Overview

Gastroesophageal reflux disease, referred to as GERD, is a condition that causes stomach acid to flow back through the esophagus, which is the tube that connects the mouth and the stomach. When stomach acid flows back through the esophagus, it is called acid reflux, and this can cause irritation to the lining of the esophagus.

Occasional acid reflux is common and typically does not mean a person has GERD. On the other hand, someone with GERD experiences mild acid reflux at least two times per week, or a moderate to severe bout of reflux at least once weekly.
In most cases, lifestyle changes and over-the-counter medications can improve GERD symptoms. People who have a more severe case of GERD may require prescription medications or surgery.

What causes GERD?

There is a band of muscle at the bottom of the esophagus called the esophageal sphincter, and it typically relaxes to allow food to pass into the stomach, and then closes again. GERD occurs when the muscle becomes weak and allows food to flow back up into the esophagus. Certain risk factors, such as obesity, hernia, smoking, eating large meals too late in the evening, or drinking coffee can cause or aggravate GERD. Pregnant women may also be more likely to experience GERD.

 

Is GERD dangerous?

Mild GERD may be manageable, but over time, more severe cases of GERD can cause damage to the esophagus, leading to scar tissue and difficulty swallowing food. GERD can also lead to complications such as open sores that make it painful to swallow. In some cases, GERD can cause changes in cells of the esophagus, which leads to a condition called Barrett’s esophagus and can increase the risk of cancer.

 

Should I see a doctor for GERD?

If you have occasional bouts of acid reflux that improve with medication, it may not be necessary to consult with a doctor. On the other hand, if you have severe reflux symptoms or feel the need to take over-the-counter heartburn medications more than two times per week, you should consult with a doctor so you can receive proper treatment and prevent complications from GERD. A doctor can prescribe medications, or in some cases, recommend surgery. It is also helpful to understand that while chest pain can sometimes be a sign of GERD, you should receive immediate medical attention if you have chest pain, as it can be a sign of heart attack.

 

Common Symptoms

  • “Soon after eating, I feel a burning sensation in my chest, and it is worse at night.”
  • “When I have an episode of GERD, I get a sour taste in my mouth and have trouble swallowing.”
  • “Sometimes I feel as if I have a lump in my throat, and I seem to regurgitate the food I have just eaten.”

Was one of the more pleasurable doctors visits I have ever had. Dr. Bakken was great, asked a lot of questions to get to the bottom of my issues and immediately presented solutions to move forward. More importantly she took ample time visiting with me and I did not feel rushed. I will say getting ahold of an actual person midday at Center For Digestive Health (going through the automated prompts) can be a tedious process but that is not a reflection of Dr. Bakken's competency or professionalism.Michelle B.Michelle B. ★★★★★ Dr Bakken is a very kind and compassionate doctor.Camie F.Camie F. ★★★★★ Had a good experience and would recommend this place for your procedure!

Yes, the prep is nothing fun, but not anything worse than I had anticipated. After that, Dr. Quallich and his staff made me feel as comfortable as can be, and everything, including the procedure, went as discussed. The rest of my day, I felt as normal as can be.

He took the time to explain his concerns regarding my issue in a very caring way. I have a very complicated health history and appreciated him taking a conservative approach.The thing that impressed me most, while in the exam room I received a text from my wife who was waiting in the parking lot. She said that when she turned off the car and when she went to restart it would not start. She had already made a call to the tow company who said it would over an hour wait. All this happened on Veterans Day when we had over eight inches of snow fall.I casually mentioned this to Dr.Wille, he said I only have two more patients I can give you a jump when I'm done, where are you parked? I was flabbergasted when he said that. The tow truck still had not arrived by the time he finished with his patients.

FAQs

What happens during my first visit?
If you are a new patient, you can expect to have a complete physical exam. You will also be asked detailed questions about your current problems and your past medical history, your current medications, allergies, your family history and other pertinent medical information. If you are taking medications, please bring a completed medical history form with you to your appointment. Once the physician has reviewed your medical information and completed the physical examination, a plan of care will be developed. You may need to be seen again in the office, be referred back to your family physician for follow-up care, or require additional testing. If additional tests are needed, we will assist you in scheduling these tests.
What if I need to schedule an endoscopic procedure?

An endoscopic procedure allows the physician to visualize a part of your gastrointestinal tract with a special instrument called an endoscope. If your family physician has ordered testing, you will be contacted by telephone by one of our staff members. If a physician orders testing and you are in the office, the procedure can generally be scheduled during the course of your visit. You will be given a date, time, and location for the test, as well as written instructions telling you how to prepare for the test. If you have any questions about the procedure, please feel free to ask one of our staff members or the physician.

How do I get test results?

We ask that you wait 10 to 14 days before contacting us for results. Often results come from several different sources. This information needs to be compiled and reviewed by your physician before you can be appropriately advised. 

What insurances do you accept?

We accept payment from most insurance companies including Medicare, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Blue Care Network, Physicians Health Plan, Cofinity, Sparrow Professional Health Network, Medicaid, McLaren, Health Plus, and several others. Accepted insurances are subject to change at any time without notice.

If your insurance requires an authorization from your primary care physician, you may be asked to assist us in obtaining this authorization.

All patients are responsible for all copays and deductibles at the time of service.

If you have any questions regarding your benefits or insurance coverage, please contact our Billing Department at 248-844-9710.

What if I need to contact the doctor?

To contact your doctor during business hours please call our main number 248-844-9710. If you have an urgent need to speak with the doctor after hours, you will be rerouted to our after hours answering service, and your doctor will be paged. In the case of a medical emergency please proceed directly to the nearest hospital emergency room.
