The Minnesota Reflux and Heartburn Center is a comprehensive, patient-centered initiative focused on providing a solution of testing and therapies for any and all patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), heartburn, and esophageal symptoms.
The Center provides smooth access to comprehensive treatment of GERD as a service to patients and referring physicians. Various physician specialists treat advanced GERD on the same team with the goal of clinical excellence delivered in a manner that produces outstanding patient satisfaction.
All options of testing and treatment are available to patients. Patient education and participation in treatment decisions is paramount and the process is streamlined by eliminating long waits between appointments. Patients have a designated expert contact readily available and all physicians involved in the treatment communicate together and supply unified care.
Center specialists are available for patient appointments at Cuyuna Regional Medical Center’s Crosby and Baxter locations and at Riverwood Healthcare Center in Aitkin. Patients may be referred by their primary care physician or seek more information by contacting the Minnesota Reflux and Heartburn Center’s specially trained Nurse Coordinator Lea Carlson, R.N., at 218-546-4343.
