Patient Comments (1)

in Knoxville, TN |
After 24 years of being in a doctor's care, for extreme GERD, that only treated my symptoms, Dr. Samavedy, ran the appropriate tests and got me into a surgeon. After 24 years, I'm finally heartburn free and the cellular changes that took place in my esophagus have now been reversed!!!
