University Gastroenterology as good as everyone says?
I was recently diagnosed by my PCP with Crohn's disease and I live in the rhode island area, I'm having a hard time finding a gastroenterologist that I like, I found this site: http://www.universitygi.com and all the reviews I've read of the doctors there are spectacular, Lisa Mueller actually was rated Best Doctor for a Woman 2 months in a row. I'm just a little nervous going to a doctor I know nothing about so please share anything you've heard or experienced. It doesn't just have to be about crohn's disease, if they've treated you for anything, liver problems, IBS anything like that please let me know what you think of them. Thank you
My husband started having severe cramping, gas, at times, bloating, and diarrhea about the past 20 years. He is now 61 years old. he often has to take anti-Di meds to try to survive. He has to go immediately when he feels the urge. He seems to be in good health, sees his Dr. often. He has had several colonoscopies, but they say he is clean and clear. His life is rough , socially,with this condition.( His movements are quite explosive at times.) He has dark circles under his eyes, often darker than usual, and seems to have issues with energy. He eats a salad, and within an hour, he wil see undigested food in his movement. He always worked shiftwork most ofhis work-history and we attributed it to his job stress, he never slept well, etc.
Is there any relief in this lifetime for him?
