I recently moved to the Pittsburgh area and would like to know if anyone can recommend a good GI doctor.

Hi & welcome to the 'Burgh! There are several good GI's in the area who specialize in IBD. I'm currently at the Digestive Disorders Center at UPMC Presbeterian Hospital seeing Dr. Baidoo. Dr. Reugiero (sp) is there also, he was my first choice but at the time I needed a new GI asap so I ended up with Dr. Baidoo.

Good luck finding a new GI.

Thanks I will give them a call. It is good to be back home in Pittsburgh. Too bad I can't eat a lot of O hot dogs or Primanti sandwiches though.
