I've had stomach issues nearly all my life, I'm now 19 and have decided I'm going to a DR to try and get some help and make sure I have IBS. I've had the upper and lower gi done about 7 years ago, but want to get rechecked. I live in Randleman NC, work in Asheboro. If anyone on this board lives in this area and can recommend me a gastrologist, or tell me who not to go to, I'd really appreciate it. I know dr's aren't much help with IBS, but I'm hoping there might be one around my area that is familiar with it and can help. I tried calling around and asking the receptionist if their doctor has any success is treating ibs but they all just tell me to come in for an appointment. I can't afford to spend all my money moving from dr to dr, and would rather find a good one right away.
