there are other Drs in both groups but make sure in teh GI assoc you get Shah since he is the CD specialist in the practice...I was with antoehr practice before and felt they were not aggressive enough with my Tx. Shah has 2 offices one in pawtucket one in providence and the surgeons office is in pawtucket. All of the surgeons in that office are good...schecter is supposedly the best but with him, be prepeared to wait anywhere from ur appt time to 2.5 hrs after ur appt time to actually see him. I have had all of the surgeons in that office at one time or another thru my surgeries this yr whether it be that the others were on call when my Dr was away and in 1 case my doc had one of the other docs assist him in my reversal surgery rather than a resident esp since I have had so many complications. Good luck :)
