Concerning your very good addition to the gastroesophageal reflux disease page (diff), could I ask you to consider finding secondary sources (e.g. reviews) to support the content? I can strongly recommend reading WP:MEDRS, a guideline on finding the best sources for medical articles. JFW | T@lk 22:08, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Second that and welcome to Wikipedia. We are happy to have you hear. --Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:01, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
The last journal article that I cited (36) is a secondary source - it is from the Canadian Journal of Gastroenterology and summarizes the research in the first 2 articles, while giving a general overview on the prevalence and impact of GERD in Canada. Should I be looking for something else to supplement that, or should I just be citing it differently? Thanks for the coaching, I'm obviously new to this and anxious to be proceeding correctly.JAWalker09 (talk) 00:06, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
