mine is Eastside Gastro, which I think is partners with Puget Sound? Have you heard of them? How do you like your doctor?

I like my doctor too. Have you been with yours the entire time? I was at a different place and the gastro misdiagnosed me for a year. It has been a process!! In fact today I got a bill from the first doctor who misdiagnosed me, ugggh.

This is Dr #2. I was with a different dr at the same practice for about 2 years. He was ok, but we just didn't communicate very well. The new dr seems to listen to me more : )

about 5 months. One cool thing is I started a flare while under the old doctor. I went to see the new doctor soon thereafter. I called in once a week to check in, etc with the new doctor until the flare went away. I saw him again a few weeks ago. I'm really glad he is so open to phone conversations as opposed to just regular visits.
