I see both.
I see my GI for the Reflux issues as it pertains to GERD. Everything that has to do with testing, PPI's and the discussions about potential surgery (I actually find out what my manometry and pH testing results will be tomorrow).
I also have LPR. Since my GI ignores my LPR symptoms, like confirmed throat swelling, raw and red irritated vocal chords and that raspy voice most of us suffer, I make sure that I check up with ENT to scope me to make sure things are not getting too bad. Although, after seeing her yesterday she has said that even with the PPI's I'm getting a lot of swelling!
Speaking of my ENT, I asked the million dollar question.... and that is why no body talks about LPR, only GERD. She said that the reason is that LPR is a symptom of GERD, and that GERD is the root issue. Dr's will tend to treat the issue at the source, not just the symptoms. If there was not GERD, there would be no LPR.
Have a good night.
