“We are in the midst of an epidemic,” says Dr. Jamie Koufman of the 125 million people who suffer from acid reflux. Dr. Koufman goes on to note that people with reflux are profoundly under-served and misdiagnosed. She looks to change that, however. As an internationally renowned pioneer and expert in airway reflux with over 30 years experience, Dr. Koufman serves as medical director for the flagship Koufman Reflux Center in midtown Manhattan which opened its doors this fall, utilizing cutting-edge and innovative diagnostics designed and developed by Koufman herself.
