Hi Group -
I am fairly certain (still a few things to finalize) that I will be relocating from Southern California to the Northern Virginia/Washington DC area later this year. While I'm excited about the move for personal reasons, the biggest concern I have is starting all over with a new GI doctor. Wanted to see if anyone had recommendations for a doctor in the area. I have a great relationship with my GI now and will be asking him if he has any colleagues there, but thought getting a good word from a fellow patient is even more of an endorsement!
I'm 32, have Crohn's colitis, and have only had 2 major flare-ups since diagnosed in 2001 (one was earlier this year...still coming out of it).
**Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2001; diagnosis changed to Crohn's disease in 2009 (but still only impacts colon)
**Asacol (4800 mg daily), 6-MP (100 mg daily -- recently switched from Imuran), Prednisone (8 mg daily...for a few more weeks), Flagyl (250 mg every other day), Nexium (40 mg daily)
GOAL of one day being immunosuppressant free...still working on my doctor on this one but I am a world traveler who desperately wants to go to Africa one day!
