Hi Mae and Welcome to Healing Well!! Glad you found us and I do agree, this place is awesome!!! I don't live in your state so I'm not any
help in helping you find a good GI doctor. One thing I did though when I was trying to find another doctor for a second opinion, I went on
line and looked up the GI doctors that are out of the nearby hospitals. Their schooling and doctor interests were posted so I could
see if they were a GI doctor who specialized in CD, IBS, etc... If they did then I called to see if they were taking new patients and
could get me in. The first one I called got me in within a week and I went. I figured if I didn't like what he had to say or like
him in general I would try again. He ended up being super nice and explained this disease to me more so I understood better.
He also spoke highly of my current GI doctor and told me I was with the best doctor I could be with in my area. So that also
made me feel better. The reissurance that my current doctor was doing the right thing really helped me!!
I hope you can find someone who you trust and will listen to you.
