I'm not sure about
the SLC area, but I'm originally from OR, lived in and around Portland for years, then lived in the Corvalis/Albany area where I was dxed with UC in '06. It's been a little while, so names are a bit foggy for me, but the place I went to in Corvalis was the Corvalis GI Clinic located by the hospital at the north end of town (can't remember the hospital name). They got me in pretty quickly, and once seen, they got me in for a c-scope almost immediately. At the time I had a bad c diff infection that was resitant to Flagyll, but was eventually knocked out by Vanco. I would have stayed with the Cor GI Clinic, except that I moved right after the dx and my cdiff was gone. The staff were helpful, and the docs were all
open to alternatives (like probiotics and supplements) and not hell bent on pumping me full of prescript
ion drugs, although that is what eventually happened. Was this the kind of info you were looking for?
Diagnosed w/ moderate UC in May '06, had symptoms for years prior to dx - currently flaring
