Dr. Raijman will be on Your Health First this week to discuss heartburn and esophageal reflux disease (GERD). This is a very common problem faced by adults, and most are aware of the "purple pill" to treat their indigestion. But is this a good thing? Many experts fear that self medication by over the counter preparations of these medications can lead to serious complications later on. Barrett's esophagus, a complication of longstanding esophageal refulx disease, is a pre-malignant condition of the esophagus, and can develop into cancer over time.

Dr. Raijman is a national and internationally known physician in gastroenterology and disorders of the biliary system. His practice, Digestive Associates of Houston, specializes in complex cases of the digestive system.  Dr. Raijman is located in the Texas Medical Center, Houston, TX.
