I am a patient living in Canada tortured by esophageal spasm with serious symtoms making me can not lead a normal life. No doctors in here can solve my problem. I went to see Dr. Pandolfino in Nov 2016. He did several tests for me and had reviewed my previous medical records carefully. He is really so knowledgeable, experienced, responsible, positive and encouraging. He treats my illness analyzing my situation integrately. I am still under his care by phone/email back in Canada. He is great.
