About the Author
As one of the few pediatric gastroenterologists serving Houston’s referral area of nearly eight million, Dr. Bryan Vartabedian has diagnosed and treated more than 5,000 children with acid reflux disease. He is an assistant professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and serves as an attending physician at Texas Children’s Hospital, America’s largest children’s hospital. The issue of reflux disease is of personal interest to Dr. Vartabedian because his daughter suffered during her early months with severe reflux esophagitis. He lives with his family in The Woodlands, Texas.
