What is heartburn?
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.
What are the symptoms of heartburn?
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
How is heartburn treated?
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.

Dr. Swarnjit Singh is a very knowledgeable doctor. He was concerned about a few problems I am/was having, and sent me for several tests. He rules out what he could. Unfortunately, my main problems are Neurological, so I am seeing another specialist at this time. If I do need an additional Gastro testing done, Dr. Singh will be my first phone call.
Very nice and clean office, building, etc. Very kind from the front desk to the nurses and doctor, explained everything Very well and give you the patient all the options but gives you the best professional opinion. Great care team.
Do I say I had a 5-star experience? No one wants a colonoscopy however mine could not have gone better. I think my nurses were Martina, Kelly, Joan, Sheila and Eric (who gave me the I.V.). Each one was so personable and comforting. We even laughed a bit while at the same time my nurses were efficiently caring for me, making final preparations for the procedure. I'll tell you, the moment Joan took my hand and told me she'd be taking care of me during the actual procedure my anxiety melted. That smile of hers! However, they were all just wonderful. I loved that the ginger ale I'd told Martina I wanted after the procedure was waiting for me and delivered immediately upon my asking. Shelia even brought me a wonderful coffee after I drank my ginger ale. I hate to go on and on but I am just so impressed and I appreciate everyone's efficiency, attention to detail, my comfort, the reassurance provided, and, of course, along with my doctor, the excellent medical care I received. Thank you for going the extra mile for me, for your patients.
Very good experience I felt the doctor really listened to my issues
Dr. Ramos and his staff are by far the most competent group of medical professionals that I’ve ever worked with. Wonderful experience each time I have an appointment. Specifically, Kaitlyn (PA) explained everything to me in a clear manner. She was also kind and friendly. They have taken great care of my health. I am so glad I chose TDDG and would highly recommend to anyone!
