Our mission is to raise community awareness about the signs, symptoms and potential consequences of untreated heartburn and offer state-of-the-art treatment. We specialize in comprehensive care for esophageal disorders, including GERD, Barrett's esophagus (a precancerous condition) and early esophageal cancer.
From advanced diagnostics to breakthrough treatments, a team of board-certified gastroenterologists offers a variety of solutions to help those who suffer with heartburn. Treatment options include dietary management, medication, as well as Cryo-Ablation Therapy, Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) and GI Motility studies. The clinic also provides education, support groups, research opportunities and serves as a resource for primary care providers and their patients.
Among the advanced diagnostic tests and treatments we provide are:
High definition endoscopy - provides physicians with greater clarity and visibility when examining the lining of the GI tract using imaging and video technology.
Esophageal dilation - a procedure the physician uses to stretch a narrowed area of the esophagus
Botox injection - to paralyze and relax the muscles at the bottom of the esophagus in patients with a condition that causes difficulty with swallowing
Care for Mind, Body and Spirit
At the Heartburn Clinic, we see each patient as a unique creation of God. Our practice of medicine is based on a holistic approach to healthcare that addresses the entire person - the physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions. We are committed to providing exceptional care while preserving each person's dignity, demonstrating compassion and showing respect for all faith traditions.
