ABSTRACT
The article presents a March 2011 study, conducted by the American Gastroenterological Association, on gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) as not being discussed in the doctor's office. The study revealed that 39% of respondents stated they occasionally spoke about GERD with healthcare providers, while 19% of respondents claimed they never talked with GERD. It showed that 34% said they waited 12 months or more after they experienced symptoms before going to their healthcare providers.
