It's official! My hubby and I are moving to Silverdale in November! I was wondering where you get treated and if you have been happy with the care you have received (I'm assuming you have). I need to find a new Gastro doc/facility so any input would help from you and anybody else who lives in Wa State!

How are you feeling btw..hope you are better now! I read your post from earlier this week cry

Take Care!

husband military? I was outsourced from a large military hospital south of Tacoma to a civilian GI. There are two large GI group practices in Tacoma, south and across the bridge from Silverdale. Not familiar with GI services in Bremerton. The two practices here are Tacoma Digestive Disease Specialists and Digestive Health Specialists. If you want specific recommendations for Tacoma, feel free to email me. My email is under my anme at the left.

Seattle is another option for you - less driving but pesky ferry fees.

I live in Portland, OR but I did the Prochymal trial in Seattle. I really liked the office staff and doctors there so I would recommend them without question. They have three offices -- Puget Sound Gastroenterology (http://pugetsoundgastro.com/ -- If I'm allowed to use the link... sorry if not.)
--40 year old female, dx as UC in '04 (1st symptoms in '03), switched to Crohn's in '05, 1 fistula, crohn's colitis, limited to large intestine
--rejected (reaction/didn't work): Asacol, AZA, 6-MP, MTX, Remicade, Humira, prednisone
--methylpred - finally off 6/15/08, tried Prochymal in Phase III study (can't wait til it's approved!)
--started Tysabri 3/21/08
--single mom to 10-yr-old girl

Thank you both for your recommendations! My hubby is in the military, and I'm glad we're moving to WA State!

Take Care,
