I would suggest that you try one of the teaching hospitals in Boston. Unless you are down by Newport it shouldn't be more than an hour, hour and a half to get into the city. You could get a consult/second opinion and from there ask who you could see that would be more local to you. Either Beth Israel or Mass General would be good places to start. Beth Israel has an IBD clinic with several really good doctors. I was in Beth Israel a few years ago and met several as they were doing rounds, they seemed to really know their stuff.
I see a doctor at Beth Israel once every few years and a doctor who is more local to me for more urgent/regular needs. But when I needed to change GI's because the one I was seeing just wasn't listening to me, I found my current GI by asking the doctor in Boston who he would recommend. I now have 2 GI's who trained together, so they are great at communicating with each other and they have a similar approach.
