Heartburn is what happens when you have a burning sensation in your chest. This pain can get worse after eating, or during the evening hours. It can also happen when lying down or bending over. If you’ve experienced heartburn you are unable to manage or had frequent heartburn that interferes with your daily life, it might be a symptom of a more serious condition. The gastrointestinal specialists at GI Alliance can assist you in relieving the issue. Connect with our office to schedule an appointment.

While most people are able to manage their heartburn on their own, understanding the symptoms is key to managing the condition, and to knowing when it is time to visit one of the GI physicians at GI Alliance. The symptoms of heartburn include:

  • A burning sensation in the chest after eating

  • Pain that worsens when lying down or bending over

  • Bitter or acidic taste in the mouth

  • A burning feeling in your throat

  • Difficulty swallowing

Commonly, the quickest way to have heartburn treated is to rely on over-the-counter medications like antacids that help to neutralize stomach acid so that you can get quick relief. However, with these methods, the medications are unable to heal an esophagus that’s been damaged by stomach acid.

When over-the-counter treatments aren’t working successfully, or you feel you’ve been relying on them too often, our GI doctors at GI Alliance are happy to have you schedule an appointment. They will work with you so that you can manage your symptoms successfully.

Heartburn can be an uncomfortable symptom, but it can be relieved. Address your heartburn by getting treatment from the experienced gastroenterologists at GI Alliance. The team routinely treats heartburn and can help you manage your symptoms so that you can get back to enjoying your day-to-day.

I love being treated by Dr. Branstetter. She is very personable and easy to talk to about subjects that are not easy to talk about. When she asks questions, she really pays attention to what you say. And when she discusses your care and treatment, she speaks in ways that are easy to understand. My only regret is not finding her sooner!

I had a colonoscopy scheduled with Dr Clark. The receptionist, though very busy, was very pleasant. The nurses were very kind and attentive. Dr Clark himself was very straight forward about what to expect and let me know the risks. The procedure itself went as well as possible - they made sure I was out and I’ve had no issues afterwards. Would definitely recommend him to others!
