Mom to Matthew, 01/16/08, GERD baby, has been on Zantac since 2 mos. Aidan, his twin brother, no GERD. Max-ed out on Zantac at 1ml-3 times/day, and switched to Prevacid 15mg split tab 08/20/08. Switched again to 20mg Prilosec 09/18/08 due to Prevacid's restlessness/headache side effects. Reflux was out of control again and had to switch to 10mg Nexium 02/11/09. Good result so far.
Anyone knows a good GI in South Orange County, CA?
I'm considering switching to a different GI for my son. If you know someone good, pls refer me. Thank you!

Well, i know that they have the university of irvine in Orange, CA. i don't know if Orange is a part of Orange County though. we are seeing the Metabolic specialists out there soon. We live in San Bernardino County so if that is near you, I would just go to Loma Linda. I hear great things about Dr. Klooster. I won't recommend Q's doc because he is really busy and the only reason we are still with him is because he has all of her history and I don't know of many people who like Dr. Yani.

Loma Linda is far for us but UCI is about 30 miles away. I'll check to see if they have pedi GIs overthere. Thanks for the recommendation.
Check with your
doctor first!
