Meet Our Doctors

The esophagus is affected by a variety of diseases such as Barrett’s, Cancer, GERD, Achalasia, and Paraesophageal Hernia. Heartburn Treatment Chicago is available at Gerd Chicago. Too often, we physicians have a narrowed, silo mentality in dealing with patients with these problems. In an effort for patients and teams of caregivers to work together on esophageal disease challenges this site has been set up to exchange information to foster beneficial conversations among patients and physicians.
