It depends on your insurance, do you need a referral? If not, I would just make appt. with the doctor you want. Keep in mind, if they are in the same practice, they may be partners and have a similar philosophy. If you see the new doc, try not to bad mouth the old one even if he deserves it, just in case they are like best friends. You have every right to see another doc. By the way, I use canasa twice a day and I am doing quite well now, I only have a small amount of inflammation and I too think canasa makes me feel better. It looks like we take the same amount of asacol too. And I take probiotiics and vitamins. I only have Ulcerative proc*** though. Good luck to you, keep switching docs untilk you found a good one that you like and will listen to you. Take Care, Bellski
