Great Doctor In Philly Area

Recommended Posts

For anyone searching for a good Doc...

I've been going to Dr. Louis Morsbach at Central Bucks Specialists (CBS) (http://www.centralbucksspecialists.com/) for my ulcerative colitis for a while now. I only learned about celiac and gluten a few months ago and have been gluten-free ever since b/c of how dramatic my improvement was. Today was the first time I met with him to talk about Celiac and I was concerned what his reaction would be.

To my surprise, he was great, and suggested that we go ahead with testing to confirm if it's Celiac or just an intolerance or whatever. Overall he was very receptive and knowledgeable about Celiac, the symptoms and it's relatively unknown prevalence in the US. He even had a Dr.'s primer on Celiac that he gave me, but i was already familiar with most of it b/c of this forum.

CBS is located in Doylestown, PA, so it's a small hike outside of Philly, but Dr. Morsbach has always been great. There are several other gastroenterologists there and I'd imagine that they too would be familiar.

Glad you found a gastro that you like. However, did he mention that your testing will most likely turn up negative since you've been gluten free?

Hi,

Finding a doctor that is knowledgeable is worth a million. I had no clue what was wrong with me, nor did I know about celiac disease. My primary doctor sent me to a gastro doctor for acid relux and bloating with chronic constipation. My endoscopy came up positive and my gastro dr sent me for additonal blood work. This process of testing is a little lengthly, but I feel like a new person. I have so much energy and feel so great about things (after I overcame the shock of not being able to eat my favorite foods). I must share that I live in Plymouth Meeting area of Pennsylvania and I go to Penn at Radnor Medical Center and my gastro doctor is Dr. Jaffee. HE IS GREAT! He takes alot of time explaining things to you and makes you feel like you are his only patient. I am not one that visits doctors frequently, but he has answered a life time of questions with this illness. Penn at Radnor is a division of University of Pennsylvania and he also has an office in the downtown Philadelphia area at the University of Pennsylvania. My name is Sylvia and if anyone does go to see him, you will be extremely pleased. Hope someone finds this helpful

If anyone is looking for a Pediatric GI-- We use Dr. Janice Kelly at CHOP and are very happy with her. She's very interested in Celiac Disease. There is also a Dr. Verma there who runs some support groups and community events for families.

My husband uses a GI dr. at Presbyterian Medical Center in Philly-- Dr. Su. She's very nice but not a Celiac specialist.
