Is Sacramento too far away? I know a great thoracic surgeon and am familiar with a good GI practice. Both are based out of the Mercy group. The thoracic surgeon just did my hiatal hernia nissen fundoplication surgery the week before thanksgiving as an urgent procedure.
If Sacramento is too far away, I wish you the best and am sorry you're not feeling well. You could check out Mercy's website to see who's in your area if your insurance accepts this group. In my experience with many specialists and medical groups, Mercy has been the best of all groups I've been with over the past 25+ years.
