I am looking for a very good hepatologist in the Portand, Or. area. There are several at OHSU and also some in private practice, but I am not familer with any of them and my current GI is a Kaizer DR and say he doesnt know of one to refer me to.

              Thanks and God Bless,

I was treated at Kaiser in So. Cal, the Hepatologist at that location were treating paitents from out of state.  I am sure you can find one closer, and they can interface with your G.I. Jim W
