His name is Dr. Merril Dayton he used to be here in Utah and he did all my abdominal surgeries. He is a great doctor. He is at Buffalo General Hospital I think its in NY but I don't know.
You can even google Dr Merril Dayton and get the address and phone number

Peggy, I was going to have my surgery done at the Cleveland Clinic with Dr. Fazio but he has cancer! so my doctor didnt send me there. I was so mad when he wouldnt send me there because Ive heard SO many amazing things about him. But when one door closes, another opens eh? I was so blessed with the surgeon I have. Dr. Torres at the Women and Childrens Hopsital in Charleton. Shes amazing!

Dr. Fazio has cancer!! I had no idea. When did you find that out? What a shock -- he was my saving grace many years ago - he gave me life. What horrible news.

I was searching the web and came across this webcast of Dr. Fazio talking about Crohn's disease, from 2005.

I had an excellent surgeon in Rochester, NY...Dr. Vincent Chang...he's a general surgeon but I will never go to anyone else from now on...hopefully I won't have to as I don't have too many things left to remove...he was voted one of the nation's top surgeons a couple of years ago.

Thanks Hodaya, I know I've been through a lot but somehow through faith, my husband, daughters, some great friends, and my extreme persistence I knew I would FINALLY be better one day and now I am.  Life is so good ,except for my daughter moving 12/14 hours away on Sunday, cry .  But I am a survivor and I can get through just about anything.  This site has been such a blessing for me also, I have found such strength in talking  with all of you and being able to share my concerns.  THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!

Blessings, prayers, and peace,

Judy
