If you're willing to go to central New Jersey, I really love Dr. Anne Swedlund at Princeton Gastroenterology. I've said it more than once around here, but I consider myself so lucky to have a doctor who tested me for celiac disease the second time she saw me come in sick. I had no chronic GI symptoms, but she was seeing me for the second time with a sudden acute sickness and she said "there's no way you get this sick twice by coincidence, you must have an underlying condition" and she tested me. So she's smart, knowledgeable, and also really nice.

Try Dr. Richard Mones out of Overlook Hospital or The Goryeb Children's Center in Morristown Hospital. He was the only Pediatric GI listed in New Jersey Magazine's list of the top 100 Dr's in NJ! He's wonderful!

Bumping up this thread for 2005.

I'm have a call to Dr Green but I have a feeling he doesn't take United Health insurance. So I'm looking for other good GI doctors in New Jersey. I'm northern Jersey but I'm willing to travel south.

Any more GI doctors (for adults) to add to the list?

You can also order direct the complete blood panel from promethius labs in san diego and have any doctor run it. Your insurance may or may not cover it, and for that matter you may or may not want it on your insurance if it comes back positive.

Dh did this for himself - cost $250 or 299 and my midwife did the blood draw (you need lab equipment and the NAME of a licensed doctor).

hth,

Merika

PS. Easier though to just insist on it or find another doctor....

It depends on where you are in Jersey and your insurance, but I use Hackensack University Medical Center...Dr Wendy Jeshion (she is my friend and child's dr). her associates are also outstanding. I think they take all my patients, including my own kids, very seriously and will find out what is wrong with your daughter. Their number is 201-336-8840.

Has your daughter been tested for Cystic Fibrosis? Has she had an endoscopy or colonoscopy? Her tests are questionable, but has she had a serum IgA done as well? I commend you for demanding good medicine and answers. I am a pediatrician who goes to great lengths for my patients and I tell parents that they are their own children's advocates....you keep asking until you get answers!

Good luck.

Do you think it's important for a child to be tested if possible celiac or do you think just putting him on the diet is sufficient? My son was tested by allergist but when I went to GI he said keep him on the diet but he probably is only gluten sensitive not celiac

I was wondering if anyone has gone to Dr. Stein in Florham Park. I found his name in the recommended doctor section at Celiac.com. I'm looking to switch doctors and wonder if he is up to date and celiac-aware.

Let me second the recommendation of Dr. Jeshion at Hackensack University Medical Center. She is excellent. Their phone is 201-336-8840.

I was referred to Dr. Stein by my GP in May 2004 and I will not go back to him. I was having severe stomach problems so he did a biopsy of my small intestine to rule out celiac. Well yes, he ruled out celiac but then pretty much told me to "watch what I eat." Hmph.

I went ahead and had Enterolab test me and yes, they found I have the gene for celiac and am gluten intolerant, etc. A relief to me since I had the answer. During a follow-up with Dr. Stein I brought the results with me and his answer was the same -- he pretty much told me to "watch what I eat." Not very supportive.

5 years ago I went to someone affiliated with St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston NJ, His partner is now a recommended Dr on this site - Dr. Zalman Schrader. I am going to make an appointment with him. The original Dr I saw was very open to everything I said and admitted he had not had too much experience with celiac but after much testing agreed that it was a gluten problem not IBS.

If anyone has had experience with Dr. Schrader please let me know...

ALSO - I need a GP & Rheumatologist that know what they are doing who are associated with St. Barnabas - any suggestions?

I wish there was such thing as a gluten free GP who covers ALL our problems!!!

GI - Dr. P. Sachan on Chestnut St. in Union, NJ


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Does anyone know of a dr in the more central shore area of NJ? I need someone serious, who would take this seriously. The last GI I had kept releasing me out of the hospital when I couldnt keep any food in at all. The doc in the ER diagnosed me, but he isnt a GI.

I am also looking for a good GI doctor in this area... you find one? if I get a good recommendation, I'll post it here..

I also want to find a new primary doctor (though I don't need referrals for my insurance), preferrably in Monmouth County, who is familiar with food allergies, celiac, candida, etc.

Sarah:

I didn't see your post until today 8/28/06

My husband has celiac and his GP disagreed with the GI who made the diagnosis, so that GP is obviously out of the running for you.

I go to Dr. Michele Morandi on Galloping Hill Road, in Union and she has seen my husband for medical consult on occasions. Right now she's on maternity leave until end of Sept. 06.

well, it looks like I'm still looking for a GI... the doctor I went to today told me I might have celiac disease and recommended I get the blood test done and possibly the biopsy.. after I told him I had been gluten-free the whole year and wouldn't test positive, he said it didn't matter as it's a blood test and me having been gluten-free is irrelevant :rolleyes:
