Looking at getting a second opinion and wondering if anyone had recommendations for GI  and surgeon in Boston?

Are you looking for someone in Boston proper or in the 'burbs? I see someone at Beth Israel once a year on a consult basis, but my regular GI is outside the city. They both trained under the same doctor so they have a similar attitude and work well together. I like them both. Dr Adam Cheifetz at BI and Dr. David Fefferman in Stoneham. I don't have a surgeon at the moment, knock wood!

I see Dr. Moss at Beth Israel. Recently switched to Beth Israel after a bad experience at Mass General. He's a chrohn's/colitis doctor, not a surgeon though. Good luck.
