I live about 3 hours from St. Louis (Champaign, IL)and had my second resection surgery there April 1. Dr. Elisa Birnbaum was my surgeon. When I had my follow-up with her, I asked for the name of a good GI at Barnes and she suggested your guy. I haven't needed an appointment, but I do have his card. Glad to hear you are happy with him.
