We searched for a long time to find a great doctor in Southern California. For anyone within driving distance of Los Angeles, we highly recommend:

Dr. Michelle Pietzak, M.D.

Childrens Hospital Los Angeles

Gastroenterology & Nutrition

(323) 669-2181

4650 Sunset Blvd

Los Angeles, CA 90027

Dr. Pietzak (aka "Dr. Pizza" to our girls) was awesome with us and the children. We (finally) feel like we're in good hands.

Also, I asked for a recommendation for an adult GI and have heard Dr. Lori Yam in Tarzana is quite good. She is at San Fernando Valley Gastro.

I'm glad you found a good doctor in Dr. Pietzak. I just had a bit of a frustrating conversation with her scheduler and was told that she only sees confirmed celiacs. Since I have celiac, my son has a lot of symptoms but tested negative on blood work I wanted to see an expert in the area. Unfortunately Dr. Piezak doesn't want to see people like us!

I also had numerous frustrating conversations with scheduling there. In fact, I still have very frustrating conversations with scheduling there. She sees patients on Thursdays. Keep calling. Be persistant. The schedulers are inconsistent, I promise you that!!!!!! My guess is that you will get your wish if you keep calling...that was my experience!

Also, another poster saw someone else in the group and had an excellent experience!

Hang in there!

Thank you! Maybe I'll try again. I have my boys scheduled down in San Diego with someone from the UCSD Celiac center so I think they should be in good hands. I just want to get them in as soon as possible. Maybe I'll just nag the schedulers at both places every day for a week and see whether I get an appointment or banned from the practice. =)
