Just started seeing my present GI in February. He has been well over an hour late the last two times. My appointments have been right after lunch and both times he has come from endoscopy where he had to admit a patient. He apologizes and takes all the time I need and I never feel rushed even though he had five patients waiting by the time he got to the clinic last week. It is a two hour drive for me so I don't make plans for the rest of the day. Have also seen a general surgeon and a colorectal surgeon that I would be comfortable with if it came to surgery.
Crohns's came as a complete surprise last year after my first colonoscopy so a great team of doctors has made things a whole lot easier. My first GI was Ok but he told me he gets paid to answer my questions! But he did consult with another GI about my treatment, hence the different referrals.
