Nothing makes our day more than getting feedback from RefluxMD’s visitors and members. You can imagine my surprise when a member’s message showed up in my inbox on New Year’s Day. We just had to share. On June 6th Mary started down her path to relief by using our DocMatch service to request a GERD expert. We suggested Dr. Thatigotla MD who serves the community in and around Niagra Falls, NY. Over the next few weeks she had several questions and we were happy to assist her. In most situations like this, we never hear the final story……but we loved getting this update from Mary! Happy New Year!

I feel compelled to write to you to express my deep appreciation for all of your help in assisting me in my determination to regain my health. On December 21, I had surgery to repair a hiatal hernia, and also had the Nissen Fundoplication surgery at the same time. I did use the surgeon that you recommended, and could not have been more pleased. He is an absolutely outstanding doctor in every way…an extremely skillful, knowledgeable, and confident surgeon, and was so kind and patient on a personal level.
I am just 10 days post-op, and I already feel amazing. After suffering for so many years, and watching my health rapidly declining, I now feel like a new person. I can’t tell you how happy I am that I made the decision to have this surgery. You were instrumental in how this came about, through the knowledge I was able to obtain from your website, and from the recommendation of Dr. Thatigotla, which was, I feel, the reason it was so successful…being able to have such a skilled and experienced surgeon.
Your last correspondence was so reassuring to me, it gave me the confidence to give Dr. Thatigotla a call. That call changed my life. Thank you so much, Bruce, for all the time and effort you put forth to help ones like myself. I am looking forward to the days ahead, confident that good health is now within my reach. Thank you again for all that you do. I just had to let you know how much your efforts are appreciated.
Mary, thank you for your kind message of hope for all those seeking relief this year. Anyone needing a GERD expert, please use our online Find A GERD Expert tool. Happy New Year!
