I'm not sure where you live, but here is whom I would recommend. My primary GI doc, whom I see most frequently, is Craig Pepin MD at the Poly Clinic in Seattle WA. The other GI doc I see is a motility specialist. He is very well known, with a stellar reputation. David Patterson MD at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle WA.

Good luck in you search!

I see Dr. Hoang in Fort Worth, TX and he is a very good GI doctor. I am very pleased with him.

Where do you live?

Don't know if you found anyone. I have slow stomach and bowels and am currently seeing Dr. Greenlaw at Rockford Gastroenterology. He is retiring next yr. so I am probably going to see Dr. Vicari.
Hope you already found someone but if not hope this helps.

The clinic number is (815)397-7340 Rockford Gastroenterology Assoc. in Rockford, IL

Kristen,

I saw Dr. Rosen years ago.
Wanted no part of my disease.
Very rude.
One of the worst GI appointments I've had in all my years of struggling with this.
Never tried anyone else there because of that visit.

Hi, I read your post about the American Neurogatroenterology and Motility and the list of physicians you could provide. I live in Michigan. I use to see a GI doctor at U of M but they no longer take my insurance. I saw a Gi doctor a few months ago but after several tests and three visits, he informed me that he dosen't deal with patients with J-pouches. My motility problem has gotten worse this last past year that I've lost a lot of weight. I'm down to 96lbs. Food just does not agree with my gut. I have an appointment with a GI Doctor at Detroit Med. Center in January with a Dr May. Her nurse never real gave a straight answer as to if this doctor deals with j-pouches. If you know of any GI doctors in Michigan, it would be greatful for any information you can give me. My e-mail address is csleeve@comcast. net. Thanks

Have suffered 20+ years with slowly progressive colonic inertia. Recently, I have been revisiting this diagnosis for any updates in testing and treatments that are available. After extensive internet search for help, Im quite astonished by the following:
1. Most corner GI stores cant handle this
2. GI specialists in functional bowel disease or GI motility Are like finding a needle in a haystack. I approximate less than 75 in the entire country. Considering the number of Gi docs on this country that number is very small.
3. Most of these motility specialists are in there 50 and up. Very few younger docs coming through the system to replace them.
4. Doing colonoscopies is what pays the bills with GI docs not treating chronic GI patients.

My best advice is to do you homework. Search for one of these specialists. In this day and age of approaching socialized medicine getting to "the right guy" is key for any hope of help.

I'm in South Western Pennsylvania. Know any good doctors in this area? The doctor who diagnosed GP gave me the name of a dietitian and said I should come back to see him in a year!!! Needless to say I want another GI doctor.
