Abstract

Informed consent was obtained verbally via telephone call from the patient and his family and this consent was documented in the electronic medical record
A 43-year-old male with history of asthma presented to his primary care physician with solid and liquid dysphagia. A barium esophagram revealed “free gastroesophageal reflux” and findings suspicious for ineffective esophageal motility. He was referred to gastroenterology, but did not establish care due to lack of insurance.
