The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) has a "find a physician" tab on their web site.  This could be a list to start with.....

You can also contact a major facility (I called the local teaching facility) and request a list of specialist near your area. that is what I did when I moved a bunch of years ago. They won't make recommendations, but mine gave me a list that you could tell was their choice list.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....
