Any recommendations? Our lovely (read with a LARGE amount of sarcasm) has decided not to approve my son's referral to his ped GI at Children's. I am trying to talk hubby into using the POS option and paying OOP for the visit, but he's not going for that at the moment. So, our option now is Hopkins (our plan is affiliated with them). 

Dr. Carmelo Cuffari is the one that comes to our local provider's office. A quick web search shows that his main interest is IBD. DS needs to be seen again for worsening GERD and I would like him tested for Celiac with my recent dx (which our ped won't do without me being genetically positive and the insurance is fighting with my GI about the genetic test...banging head against wall here). So, I would prefer a doc who is interested in Celiac research, etc. I did find there is ONE person in the department at Hopkins. I am willing to drive to Baltimore (it's about a 1.5 hour drive each way).

 

We are in the DC/NoVa area. Any suggestions for a ped GI in the area would be appreciated (we have seen Dr. Kerzner at Children's in the past and I LOVE him and his approach).

Hi, I'm Melissa

Mostly gluten-free 5/12 in an attempt to help migraines

Surprise! All my GI symptoms resolved (that I was blaming on not having a gallbladder)

EGD 1/13; biopsies showed inflammation suggestive of partially treated celiac

Bloodwork negative (of course, I was gluten-free)

GI dx'd celiac 1/13
