Birdiem, I'm sure there are members here from Chicagoland who can give you recommendations. Please note that the only criterion for a doctor to be listed on the CCFA website is that they pay their dues. In my area, for example, there are only three doctors listed, althought there are a lot of GI's here. None of the docs in the practice I go to are there, even though they are a research site and very proficient with IBD. Probably the practice manager decided to cut that expense this year.
Good luck with your re
Moderate to severe left-sided UC diagnosed 2001.
Current meds are Colazal, Azathioprine and Remicade. Completely off steroids for more than a year now! In remission since April, 2006. Remicade has been my wonder drug.
Now tapering Azathioprine, please pray for me.
