I will be changing insurance in December, and I am wondering if anyone knows of a good gi doctor around Morris County or more Western Passaic county.  I was going to Clifton, and it's a little too far east for me (I live in NW NJ), but I'll go if the person is really good. 
I can no longer see my doc - he doesn't take my ins.

Diagnosed in April, 1998
Currently on (per day):
Pentasa 4 gms
Imuran - 100 mg
Entocort 3 mg cap

Dr. Lorraine Martin in Morristown, NJ.
I've used her for years and she's very supportive and right there when you need to talk to her.
There is also a NJ magazine that came out this month that has the top rated Drs and there is a list of GIs in there.  She's not on the list but I would look there if I couldn't see Dr. Martin anymore.
Good Luck,

If I lived in NJ, I'd travel to NYC to see Dr. Ronald Hoffman, regardless of insurance coverage.

Therapeutic dose sulfasalazine, back on a pred taper for first flare in years. Down to 10 mg and feeling much better.

I live in NW jersey.
Avoid: Dr Barbarito
Summit Medical Group
Dr. Dasani

they are the typical run you through the list of drugs "i can precribe you anything you want.. you want steriods? asa's?"

they collectively failed to tell me i was aenemic when i had a hemoglobin count of 6 (normal is 12) and non eof them thought to test my stool for c.diff.

a magazine called either new jersey monthly or new jersey weekly just had an issue about top doctors in jersey a week or two ago. i saw it at shoprite. (none of th edoctors i mentioned appeared there of course haha). I am going to pick up a copy of that when i get a chance and try out a few more doctors.

I hav eheard that Dr Soriano is very good, he works in the same office as Barbarito. make sure if you go there that you tell them you want to see Soriano. I said i had no preference and i regret that decision.

I live in Rockaway and see Dr. Matthew Krupnick. He has offices in Denville & Dover. I really have a lot of confidence in him. He answers all my questions and I feel very comfortable with him. I feel like he understands my situation because his sister has UC. Also, if I call to ask a question, he will either come right to the phone or call me back within a couple of hours.
