I live about 3 hours from St. Louis (Champaign, IL)and had my second resection surgery there April 1.  Dr. Elisa Birnbaum was my surgeon.  When I had my follow-up with her, I asked for the name of a good GI at Barnes and she suggested your guy.  I haven't needed an appointment, but I do have his card.  Glad to hear you are happy with him.

Is he in practice with anyone else?  I live in St. Charles County.  Saw a Wash U doctor and hated him.  In the 8 months that I was his patient I was him one time.  Was in the hospital twice for 8 days each and he NEVER came to see me.  I am now seeing just a general GI doctor and I really like her but I am afraid it is going to get to the point where she can't help me anymore.
