Teen with Barrett's Esophagus?

Hello, I'm a 16 year old that has had GERD since I was 12. I was wanting to know if I should get an endoscopy for a chance of having Barrett's. I do not take medication but am going to start. I also have a heart condition that I take medication for and my gastroenterologist said wait and treat that. But, I do not want Barrett's esophagus so what should I do?
