Looking For Good Doctor In Akron/cleveland Area

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm new here and have family with Celiac (Mom, Grandma) and we have come to the conclusion that I am suffering the way they did before they went gluten free eight years ago. They all have been diagnosed with Celiac and have Thyroid problems amoung many others due to such late diagnosis in thier lives. I have had all kinds of allergy tests done etc, but have never been officially tested, but what I know to be certain is that I react horribly when I eat Gluten!

I would like to go in for "officially testing" and wanted to know if anyone has a great doc in the Akron/Cleveland, Ohio area. I saw earlier posts about this but they were very old, and also printed out the names listed on the site under Ohio. Yet I'm wondering whom you feel are the best and if certain doctors are best for testing vs. continued care post diagnosis?

Thanks,

Christy

Christy,

Welcome aboard!

I don't know about a "great" doctor (Is there really such a thing?) but, I have been going to Dr. Michelle Inkster at the Cleveland Clinic - Independence office. She is a gastro specialist who diagnosed me via endoscopy & blood work and, has been receptive to my questions/concerns post-diagnosis during the past two-years. With that being said I think most Celiac people will tell you that you just have to listen to what your body is telling you. If you feel good then run with it. If you feel lousy then you need to make some changes until you find a happy medium.

Best of luck!

Cleveland Bob ;)
