Acid Reflux Program

Take control of reflux and take back your quality of life

Acid reflux, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), is a common disease caused by a weak muscle between the stomach and esophagus. Acidic contents of the stomach “reflux” into the esophagus, throat or lungs, causing a variety of mild to severe symptoms.

With a solution-oriented and collaborative approach, our goal is to get you back to living a life without the pain and inconvenience of reflux.
