Heartburn Program

The Northern Light Heartburn Program is a comprehensive, patient-centered program focused on providing a solution of testing and therapies for any and all patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), heartburn, hiatal hernia, and esophageal symptoms.

With the latest training and equipment, including advanced robotic technology, our specialists are able to diagnose many conditions causing heartburn. Our program provides easy and convenient access to comprehensive treatment of GERD as a service to both patients and referring physicians.

Patient education and participation in treatment decisions is paramount and the process is streamlined by eliminating long waits between appointments. Patients have a designated expert patient coordinator readily available, and all physicians involved in the treatment work together as a comprehensive care team to provide unified care.
