How Do I Find A Doctor For My Daughter...

Recommended Posts

From your responses below (thank you very much btw) I really think my daughter needs to be re-evaluted for celiac. The problem is I haven't a clue where to go to make that happen. My ped is really great and will do whatever I ask but by his own admission this is not a topic he knows much about and isn't really qualified to diagnose it. He wants us to see a GI guy. We've done that over the years and basically have been told she doens't have celiac because she didn't get a full + on her blood work and she will just "grow out of" her issues. I had one GI guy tell me to just take away the TV from her unless she poops regularly and another one told me it was my fault for nursing her for 20 months. Apparently breastmilk ruined her intenstines (I won't post where I told him he could go - especially considering I'm convinced that my breastmilk is the only thing that kept her on the weight charts at all since she couldn't eat food without getting sick).

So - now what do I do? How do I find a pediatric GI doc who won't blame us for her problems and will actually try to get an answer?
