Hello,
I recently saw Dr. Mark Peppercorn at Beth Israel for a 2nd opinion. He was great but he does not see patients anymore. He said he would be glad to see me come to his practice and see any of the other Dr.'s at BI.
 
If you live in MA - which Dr. do you see?
 
I was thinking about going to Dr. Farraye at Boston Medical Center.
 
Any thoughts?

I saw Dr. Yajnik @ MA General Hospital Chrons and Colitis Center.  I really liked him, he took the time to listen to me.  My friends Dad goes there too, he is on humira (has colitis).

Not sure where you are in Mass but I see Dr. Zawacki at UMASS in Worcester and I love him!

He is the most caring kind man I have ever met!

My last 2 visits we sat and talked for over an hour each time and he never made me feel rushed or like he needed to get out to see other patients.

His bedside manner is amazing!
