Dr. Oz is one of the best most concerned Dr"s I have ever been to.

very good experience.

I am still having an issue but the provider didn't see evidence of what I am describing so I felt he more or less dismissed my concerns

Reviewed on Dec 6, 2016

Gave me a list of things to help reduce reflux. The paper looked like it had been run thru a copier a million times giving the possible impression that it was dated info, and there was a typo in one of the headings, implying possible inaccuracy of info. Also the Dr was a little bit rough in positioning my head, felt a little like I was a GI in boot camp. I was confident in his knowledge though.
