I've been seeing Dr Peter Legnani at Mt Sinai and I like him very much. So far, he's been very helpful. Too bad my gut won't play along! So far, all my tests have looked pretty good, even though I am still having symptoms. For now, I am techinically undiagnosed, but I am still being treated as if I had mild Crohn's. That is, he has kept me on Pentasa, which does seem to help me some and he's also been giving me the antispasmotics which help with the cramping. meanwhile, the Rheumy I see there, Dr Peter Gorevic, has been script
ing Humira to treat my AS, so I've got all my bases covered.
At my Rheumy's request, I went for a second opinion with Dr Maria Abreu last week. She's definitely one of the top GIs in the country, but I got a call from her office just before my appt and was told that she's leaving Mt Sinai in January. To be honest, although I liked her well enough and she is at the top of the heap, I was much more satisfied with Dr Legnani. When I see him, I see HIM. He takes the time to talk to me and answer all of my questions without leaving me feeling rushed. At my appt last week with Dr Abreu, I spent most of my time with a Fellow and very little time with her.
I hope that you can find a Doc who you are satisifed with.
