Very bad! He prescribed me to take pevacid (Lansoprazole) 30mg twice a day for approx. 10 years. Dr. Fricke told me I just had a small hiatal hernia in my esophagus, no big deal. He didn't tell me of the side effects of this medication and that it would cause bone loss. Dr. Fricke wrote me off after realizing that there was nothing else he could do. I went to Dr. VonFeldman and he found a 6 centimeter hernia and Dr. Murray took care of me. I am no longer on meds because I went to Dr. Murray!
