Dr. Michael Eng. He is near Union Square. He is my doctor and very nice. He really listens to the problems you're going through, and it's not difficult to get an appointment with him (I've heard of people who have had to wait several months with other doctors - yikes!).

137 5th Avenue, New York, NY

Neville Bamji at New York Gastroenterology Associates

He is my doctor and I have a great experience with him. He is supportive and knowledgeable. I've heard stories about people being diagnosed and left on their own. Dr. Bamji sets you up for success and follows up. He is also easy to get reach by phone and email.

I went to see Eng yesterday and while he seems knowledgable - I felt rushed and if I wanted any info about treating my condition, I had to drag it out of him. He wasn't exactly volunteering to offer ways to cope with Celliac. I had the sense of being in a "mill" - get 'em in and get 'em out. He's no longer on 5th Ave. He's at 115 E. 23rd Street. But you can get an appt quickly if you need one.

Peter Green is supposedly the best in NYC when it comes to Celiac.

    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a negative blood test is fairly common.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
    • tom & chee!  good to know   they grill the sandwich on a separate pan?  or do you just order soup and salad.  so cool to find more places to eat out!!
    • Hi everybody,  I have had symptoms of Celiac since mid pregnancy and they have gotten worse over the last 5 months post partum. I have constipation, periods stopped, extreme fatigue,  joint pain, weak muscles, dizzyness, migraines, light sensitivity,  pins and needles in hands and feet, elevated TSH, depreason and anxiety. Was put on thyroid meds but it didn't help any of my symptoms. My doctor told me to try gluten free and reintroduce it. I tried it for 2 weeks and started feeling quite a bit better, then reintroduced it and felt worse than ever! It's definitely a gluten problem. She suggested I get the Celiac panel run so I got tested for Ttg iga, DGP igg and EMA all came back NEGATIVE! by this point I had only reintroduced gluten for a few days. She said my antibodies shouldn't go down by much in this time frame. Should I push for a referral to a GI doctor? I don't know why I feel the need for diagnosis? Probably my mother in law laughing when I said I can't eat gluten anymore and she tried to offer me things like donuts, saying it's just a little.  She just doesn't get it. So now, do I suffer for 6 weeks to get the biopsy or just stop eating gluten and be done with it.  I have also noticed while introducing new foods to my baby that he throws up whenever I give him anything wheat based. I doubt they can diagnose a baby and I refuse to damage his intestines for a diagnosis.  Maybe I should get my daughter tested as well? She is 3 and has been complaining of upset tummy and is frequently constipated. She is growing well though but is also quite thin. She is not a big eater. She may be constipated because she holds it. She is afraid to poop on the potty. Since I have had symptoms for only about 10 months, could there not be much damage yet? Sorry for the long post! 
    • The best thing you can do is get to your regular doctor and have a celiac panel run. You might also ask to see an allergist. Be sure to keep eating gluten until all celiac related testing is done.
    • Sounds like you may be alleric to something in both products. Next time you are at the store compare the ingredients of each to see if they have one in common that you don't think you eat in other products..  It might be a good idea to schedule an appointment with your doctor for a referral to an alergist to be on the safe side.
