Good Gi Doctor In Va?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I am in desperate need of a good GI doctor in VA. Right now I am in Blacksburg. I have been gluten free for 2 years now and I still seem to have a slow decline and I was hoping to find a good doctor to speak with. My GI doctor here misdiagnosed me several times and I dont really want to go back to him. I am willing to travel if I have to but the closer the better obviously. I am about a 4hr drive from northern VA/MD and about a 2 hr drive from Winston Salem NC. I have family in both directions.

Thank You

Matthew

I live in Blacksburg, too, and I was diagnosed a year ago by Dr. Ringold from New River Gastroenterology in Christiansburg. I have had really good experiences with him--I went there and explained my symptoms, and he immediately thought it was Celiac, and sure enough, it was. Very nice, down-to-earth guy, too. Hope this helps!

I live in Richmond, Was diagnosed through biopsy 7 days after meeting GI for the first time in late April 2005. Before meeting I knew nothing of Celiac or gluten-free diet. I had classic symptoms( malabsorption, diarrhea, weight loss). Once on diet all symptoms disappeared. What are your symptoms and why did you go on gluten-free diet? Also what do you mean when you say slow decline? I'm sure you know the diet is the only treatment for Celiac. If you are sure you are not ingesting any gluten then I would not expect to see Celiac symptoms after 2 years. Going gluten-free for that long would make diagnosing celiac disease through testing difficult. The GI's name in Richmond is Steve Clement. He is located at Johnston Willis Hospital. Good luck.

I see Dr. Kevin Dye in Roanoke Virginia. He is wonderful. I also have IBS and Ulcerative Colitis along with the Celiac. He just recently diagnosed me with Celiac. He has a wonderful bedside manner and really tries hard in order to ensure that every diagnosis is correct and complete. He has found diseases that other doctors would just dismiss as IBS. He stays on the cutting edge of medical information as well. Give him a try, he is worth it! I drive from Martinsville to see him, have tried several different GI's and he is by far the most compassionate and best inforned. Take care, Sabrina
