ABSTRACT
The optimum approach for evaluation of reflux symptoms is uncertain. Trials have used a variety of methods, and it is important that a more consistent approach is taken. One piece of the puzzle is whether symptoms should be assessed by a clinician or directly by a patient completed questionnaire. McCollet al.suggest that clinicians tend to underestimate the severity of symptoms and that a more patient-centered approach should be used to elicit symptoms. This has important implications for the development of future questionnaires in gastroesophageal reflux and other gastrointestinal diseases.(Am J Gastroenterol 2005;100:19–20)
