I've switched GIs a few times (and am about to switch again), and had to go through all the rigorous testing again. The GI that originally gave me the diagnosis and the one I'm seeing now (and am in the process of leaving) were part of the same medical clinic in the same building, same files, but he still insisted on holding my second and third Remicade infusions ransom unless I had the full range of scopes again. I'm figuring he has a car payment due . . .
What is your doctor's reasoning behind wanting to do more testing?
