how comfortable would you be if your gi was not board certified in gastroenterolgy? my current gi isn't but did have a fellowship in gastroenterology. he is board certified for internal medicine.
would this make you second guess his knowledge about ibd? i think his treatment has been fairly well but then again, i have no one to compare him to. i think the 6mp has brought some relief but i still have to take percocet prn and still have urgent d up to 8-10 times a day. he won't argue with me when i say i won't go back on the pred. honestly, i don't know if there is more he could do or not.
i'd be real interested in your opinions. i have had numerous people tell me i need to see a crohn's specialist.
