Could anyone recommend a good GI in and around New york city ? I have severe previously diagnosed GERD with LPR like symptoms too. I would like a general consultant whom I can basically talk to about my condition from time to time.

Will be ultra helpful if there is someone who is aware of the latest surgical treatments like LINX.

Thanks !

Hi gerd_hater,
Wish I could offer a recommendation, but I can't.  Still, I think you're in a great location to find an extremely experienced and knowledgeable GI doc.  Did you talk with your PCP about a recommendation?  It seems to me that might be a good place to start.  With LPR it would be wonderful if you could find a great ENT who is knowledgable about that condition.
Hopefully someone will be by soon with information!
Good luck!

Hi Denise,

Thanks for the reply. I don't have a PCP (I am actually new to the US medical system having moved here only 2 years ago). I usually find doctors to go to and book an appointment with them, which of course takes forever at the good ones.

Is it a good idea to get a PCP ?

I shall look for ENTs who recognize LPR.

Dr Jamie Koufman of New York City is ENT and reflux/LPR specialist. World renown. Google her and visit her web site at Voice Institute.
