Dr. Robert Frachtman with Austin Gastro on Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

Dr. Robert Frachtman, a gastroenterologist with Austin Gastro, discusses Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR), which can cause a variety of symptoms, such as cough, hoarseness, and wheezing, as well as cause permanent damage to the esophagus.
