Acid Reflux

Good day Doc

My mom is suffering from acid reflux, she has been put on medication for this, and its been about a year now. She has cut out all the things that increas acidity but it doesnt seem to help.

Could you recommend which specialist doctor she can see, so she can have the acid drained. Her GP keeps on giving her medication.

Your advise would be appreciated.

I suggest that your mother consults a gastroenterologist for a gastroscopy and barium meal, as it is possible that she has a hiatus hernia and can be corrected surgically.
