Can anyone recommend a gastroenterologist in South East Michigan that specialists in upper GI?
I have Barret's Esophagus due to GERD, as well as a family history of stomach cancer. Given that, I am monitored yearly with an EGD. I'm looking for a new doctor because my current one specializes in lower GI, and I would feel more comfortable with someone that has extensive experience with upper GI issues. During my appointments, he routinely dismisses any concerns I have and simply writes me a script instead of talking through issues, such as potential progression of Barret's and the preventative actions I can take.
Can anyone recommend one? Or perhaps even tell me the best way to find a good doc -- aside from randomly picking them from a list at a hospital?
