uclife - Chatting sometime sounds good. Just grab my email address from my profile and send me an email. I was formally diagnosed with UC in 2004 but have had symptoms since 2001. It just took me a while to find a good GI!
natty34 - Yes, I go to the Cleveland Clinic. I am so fortunate to have such a great hospital system in my backyard that I refuse to go anywhere else! I see Dr. Bo Shen. I would recommend him to anyone... he is absolutely fantastic. I have been seeing him since 2004, and I will never leave him (unless he moves back to China!). He hasn't steered me wrong yet. And, I might add that I can be a difficult patient. I don't accept what he says at face value - I am always researching and challenging his opinions, etc. He takes it all in stride. :)
