Yes, I live in the philadelphia area and I would have never known that I had this disease if it wasn't for my gastro doctor. He is really great. His name is Dr. Kastenberg and he works at Jefferson in center city. His phone number is 215-955-8900. His wife has the disease so he knows all about it and he also works with a dietician who specializes in Celiac. Hope this helps!!! :D

Hello!
I was recently diagnosed and live in the Philly area. I started out seeing one doctor at Pennsylvania Hospital but quickly switched to Dr. Robin Rothstein. She specializes in celiacs and she is fantastic! (my original doctor told me that she actually has celiacs, but she has yet to mention this to me). The number is 215-829-3561. Hope this helps!

I got an appt. w/ Dr. Kastenberg. Do you know if he has people do a gluten challenge before the endoscopy? I was on a gluten free diet before my first endoscopy that came back inconclusive, so I'm wondering if he's going to want me to eat gluten before the endoscopy, I don't have an appointment with him until October 4th.

dmbaird1230 -> Best to call the doctor, and find out what he'd best like you to do. Mention the earlier test, the results, and whether or not he'd want you on gluten. Most likely, you'd be leaving a message with a nurse, so make sure it's written down! Then the Doctor.. or a nurse who talked to the doctor, should call ya back with the answers.

Least that's how it normally works in my experience. =)
