does anyone know of any way to find a good doctor. I have one already but i think he does not take ibs as a serious problem. as we all know it is. so if anyone could help me that would be great. I need help fast
Hi Gin,Welcome to the board.onhealth.com has a section called 'local health directory' and ivillage.com has an allhealth channel and under that is a doctor/hospital ratings category. Give it a try. You may also want to contact your local hospital and see who is onstaff for gastrointestinal medicine and make an appointment.Best of luckbritta
Britta has some good ideas. Unfortunately, a lot of us seem to have found doctors that either don't think IBS is serious or just don't know enough about it. You would think they would refer you to a specialist, but most of them don't seem to.Another suggestion, if you have health insurance, call your carrier up and see if they have a recommendation on a specialist. More than likely they have several insured's who suffer from GI disorders and they usually keep a good eye on the doctors.Good luck.Christine------------------If a toilet is my throne, I want a padded seat!!
