I normally post at Crohn's Board, but a friend of mine who lives with sever GERD just moved to the boston area and is wondering how she can find a reputable GI that can help her keep tabs on/control her condition.

Any advice will be appreciated! Feel free to email if you don't want to post specific names. resinhed @ comcast.net

Thanks!

I wish I could help but I live in California.

Doesn't the Doctors board or something have a web site on specialists. Maybe you could google something....
