I am looking for a good GI doc in the Boston area that can handle chronic GERD, IBS, chronic indigestion as the main symptoms. I am currently seeing an MD that specializes in food sensitivities and allergies; his labwork showed high levels of candida in my digestive tract and low levels of good bacteria.

I have not been tested for SIBO and not sure about parasites. I do not have IBD or celiac.

My current GI seems to specialize in terminal diseases rather than IBS or chronic illness.

My Primary Care, Allergy MD and GI are all baffled but because I'm not on my way to death (right now) because of this, they seem not concerned enough with how it's impacting my life. I literally can't eat anything without having indigestion.

You are lucky to be in a town where there are many super specialists in GI. I recommend Dr. Anthony Lembo MD at Beth Israeal Deaconess. He is an IBS specialist at Harvard Medical School. He recently gave a talk at the American College of Gastroenterology Meeting in October 2012. Hopefully he is seeing new consultations.

My comments and opinions are not intended for diagnosis or treatment, but rather for education and thoughtful discussion.
Medical care should only be rendered through the direct care of a medical doctor.
