LPR is a growing clinical concern for patients and physicians. Symptoms negatively affect quality of life and are difficult to control. Typical symptoms include hoarseness, throat clearing, chronic cough, or the sense of something “caught” in the back of the throat. The physicians of Gateway Gastroenterology now offer simple in-office testing to determine if acid refux is contributing to those symptoms. Ask your Gateway physician about the Restech pH test to learn more.

Doctors Benage, Marshall and Su were recognized as outstanding GI physicians in 2010. In all, 24 area gastroenterologists were recognized in 2010. Most of those physicians were academicians with years of research experience at Washington University and SLU, whereas the physicians from Gateway Gastroenterology have years of experience practicing clinical gastroenterology and serving the greater St. Louis area.
At Gateway caring for patients is our priority! We honor the patient-physician relationship and we respect our patient’s time! We also understand that waiting for procedures and test results can cause undue anxiety.
To that end our goal– as physicians and staff of Gateway Gastroenterology– is to provide superior patient care and timely service from the moment you call the office to any and all interactions thereafter!
