I am looking for a new GI in NE Pennsylvania and was wondering if anyone lives in the general area and has any suggestions? I appreciate your help!

Hi Veebo,

I don't know if you are close to Jenkintown or not but this is where I go:

Check out the dr bios page to decide who might be a good fit.

Can you be a little more specific about the area? NE PA is a big place.
Diagnosed with Crohn's in early 2007.  Several peri-rectal abscesses and two fistulae with setons.  Allergic to Remicade and Humira.  Currently on 6MP, and vitamins D and B-12.

My GI doctor is at Pennsylvania Hospital in center city Phila. His office is called PHGI Associates, you can check them out online...not sure exactly where you live in NE PA.
