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 Barrett'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?
Thanks in advance for any guidance you can give.
I had originally posted this in the Gastroenterology forum, but then I realized this forum also has a great number of posts about Barrett's. I thought those of you here might have a recommendation or advice too. I'm desperate to find a good doctor.
