Why would it be necessary to do an endoscopy for acid reflux?
I asked her, why bother to do the test at all, when you can just write an RX for Nexium and avoid the "middle man" the pain and the drugs to do this test? (I had this test done years ago and it was awful, they spray your throat with this stuff that tastes like paint, the procedure is VERY painful, and the idiots that did it kept injecting my IV with that god-awful poison Versed every time I woke up....which was 5 times during the test, choking on the tube and going into respiratory arrest. I remember not being able to talk and being in pain for days afterwards. I wouldn't want her to go through this unnecessarily, especially since she is a professional singer and can't afford to have her throat or vocal cords damaged by some moron FL doctor)
