Video Transcript


Hello, and welcome. Thank you so much for joining me for this video. My name is Dr. Kashif Piracha. I’m going to be your host for this video.

I’m a double board certified internal medicine and nephrology doctor. I’m also a hypertension specialist. I have 16 years of clinical experience treating patients in different clinical settings. And the reason I’ve created this video is twofold. The topic of this video is Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, an Algorithmic Approach.

And one of the reasons I created this video is that whenever I’m seeing a patient in my hospital who is presenting with symptoms concerning for gastroesophageal reflux disease, then I use this algorithmic approach to work the patient up and to get to the correct treatment modality that I’m going to treat the patient with.

And also, if I’m on a licensing exam and I have questions about gastroesophageal reflux disease, then I use this algorithmic approach to try to get to the right answer. So without wasting any further time, let’s jump right in.
