I live in North Dakota and am about 7 hours from Mayo Clinic. People here often go there for a more extensive workup. My GI doc is not very helpful and has no bedside manner. I am having an ongoing problem with breathing when I have bad GERD and/or constipation. He just tells me it is my animal allergy, although I know it is not since it isn't always a problem and my animals are ALWAYS here. And now he is gone to India for 3 months. I'm seriously considering taking a trip to Mayo this summer.
Has anyone gone and how did it work out for you? How did you get an appointment? Are there any specific doctors that I should try to see?
