Heartburn with Darby Robinson O'Neill, MD

Dr. Darby Robinson O'Neill, MD, a gastroenterologist at The Everett Clinic discusses heartburn. Heartburn is a very common problem caused by relaxation of the sphincter muscle which allows stomach acid to come up. While there are many over the counter remedies available, if heartburn becomes serious or long-term, professional medical care should be sought. An endoscopy might be done to allow the physician to see the esophagus and stomach to check for anything that might be more serious.
