I want to go to the Chron's and Colitis Center in Boston. My friends Dad went and he was very happy with it, also my friend is a nurse who also works @ MGH, she went w/her Dad and she thought they were just wonderful.
My Aunt is helping me research my options (as my sister tells me, I do not have a PhD, ESP or a Crystal Ball........so a second opinion is not going to hurt me and I may even learn something = ). One of her nurse friends recommended the Beth Israel Hospital in Boston.
I checked out both the websites and other than the above recommendations, I don't have anything else to go on.
Anyone been to either of these places? Any thoughts or suggesstions? I am leaning toward the Chron's and Colitis center in Boston, mostly b/c of my friends Dad, my friends dealings w/MGH and the information on their website.
I really want to go to the best place.
