    Yes i have had severe pains in my stomach and upper chest i can’t sleep or eat it hurts very bad i have had 3 hernia surgery’s and i think i need surgery again to remove the mesh can u do the surgery

    • Dr. Vikki Petersen says:

      Hello Jerry,
      We do not perform surgery in the clinic.
      I think perhaps your hernia surgeries were inguinal or abdominal and not hiatal hernias. Is that correct.
      Based on your symptoms I would like to offer you a free phone consultation to see how we can best help. Fortunately we can often make the changes needed without surgery.
      Please consider calling us at 408-733-0400 and we’ll see what approach makes the best sense for you.

  • Rose says:

    I experienced an acute pain lower-mid back on the right in early March. It got ridiculously intense to the point I could do nothing, not even sleep. I saw an urgent care doc, my primary care doc, a massage therapist and a Bowen worker… massage helped a bit. Muscle relaxants made me woozy, Tylenol and ibuprofen upset my already messed up digestive tract (prescribed Prilosec years ago until I stopped due to harsh pneumonia… then Tums- type chalk tablets since 2013…). The chiropractor suggested to me by a friend is smart, experienced, but has a huge caseload and like the other docs, speed through visits. Nothing holistic. Last chiro visit he mentions hiatal hernia. After reading up on your page, I linked an intensive dentist visit (4 days prior to the back spasm) to my ridiculously ongoing digestive distress and the spasm. It makes sense. What do I need to do? I’m already shrinking meals and noting/eliminating what causes increased digestive distress… Should I call? Where in CA are you located?

    • Dr. Vikki Petersen says:

      Hi Rose,
      I’m sorry you’ve been suffering so much. We’re in Saratoga (near San Jose), but we also offer telemedicine visits. I’d be happy to try to assist you. Please call the clinic at 408-733-0400 and we can set up a free phone consultation.
