Dr Lloyd Mayer - out of Mt Sinai
he is the head of immunology (chrons is an auto immune disease) & Gastro
He specializes in chrons
if you want the best, this is it........atleast accoording to all the magazine ratings
when i first met him, he stayed & chatted with my husband & I for well over an hour, answering all of our questions, concerns....
plus they are really on the cutting edge with all medications & what not, most of the trials for new drugs are done there

dont have his # with me, maybe you can find it on your insurance website or google

Do you have crohns disease? and are you satisfied with the results he has given you? im only asking because i went to a doctor in new york a couple of months ago but bid not get the information i wanted from him. in other words did not get a good vibe form him.

I do have chron's (this is chrons site right??...:)) was diagnosed in May & had not gotten under control with my regular GI & GP, so went to a specialist
his bed side manner is not the best, but he is the head of the IBD center at Mt Sinai, so he knows his stuff
all he does is deal with crhons & UC
he is not a general GI doc, doesnt do colonoscopies & they dont believe in steroids either

Dr. Lyod Mayer is the person you want to see!!!!! I have been having problems for the past 5 years and I went to se him and he has helped me tremendously. He is the head of immunology (chrons is an auto immune disease) & Gastro
who specializes in chrons. I have been to the best of the best, doctors who write the books on this disease (Univ of Penn, Jefferson Univ Hospital & Mayo Clinic in MN to no avail). Dr. Mayer should be your first and only choice as he will get to the bottom of things. Get all your records, blood work results, x-rays, mri's, etc together because he will want his team to look at them. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me as I have everything that you may need to get in touch with him.
