Do you regularly manage patients with GERD?

 Need a practical tool to guide you through best patient care and management?

Highly practical, expertly-written, and packed with useful text tools like case histories, pitfall boxes and management algorithms, this convenient and user-friendly  manual provides you with complete clinical guidance to gastroesophageal reflux disease  (GERD), one of the most common conditions that gastroenterologists face every day.
