Dr. Jerome H. Siegel MD's Expert Contributions
  • Pain in stomach and back after eating

    You should consult with a gastroenterologist to rule out gallstones and possibly, irritation of your pancreas. Basic blood tests and an ultrasound should be done. READ MORE

  • Excessive burping with stomach pain -- what's the reason?

    It's best to consult a gastroenterologist to rule out redux, gastritis and ulcers. A simple breath test can rule out H. Pylori infection, but endoscopy is the gold standard. One can use over the counter Nexium, or drugs in that category, and antacids with simethicone will help decrease gas and burping. READ MORE

  • My doctor referred me to a gastroenterologist to check for ulcers. How are ulcers diagnosed?

    The most accurate method is having an endoscopy. Endoscopy allows the doctor to see the upper GI tract and take biopsies. It is important to rule out the bacteria, H pylori that has been known to cause gastritis and ulcers. X-ray exams facilitated by drinking barium is not as accurate but non invasive. One can start a workup by taking a breath test, again to rule out H pylori. Jerome Siegel, MD READ MORE
