Hi-

I'm looking for celiac/GI doctors in the Sacramento, CA area.

Thanks for your help!

Hi,

I am looking for a doctor in Sacramento too.

I have a homeopathic, he is really great. He has an allergist on his team.

Health Associates Medical Group 916)489-4400 / 800)675-4515

You can actually call, and talk to him between 8am and 9am.

He really believes strongly in the "Eat Right for your Type"

4 blood types, 4 diets, it is really an amazing book.

Thanks, Nancy! I appreciate you posting, especially since I hadn't heard anything since I wrote this

almost 3 months ago! Do you live in Sacramento too?

Good luck with your search. I did find a good GI doctor (Dr. Al-juburi with UC Davis medical group)

who didn't diagnose celiac, but completely believes that I'm intolerant to gluten, & is very supportive

of my doing what I need to dietary-wise to feel better.

Thanks again,

Martha

I'm looking for a general practitioner/family doctor in Roseville or Sacramento who will be supportive of my gluten-free diet at the very least, or, if I'm really lucky, experienced in treating patients with celiac. Any suggestions?

I really like my primary care physician, Dr. Victor Baquero. He's with the UC Davis Medical Group

in Folsom (916-985-9300). I've gone to him several times with concerns that he took very seriously, & he made sure my insurance covered tests for celiac/gluten intolerance without any hesitation.

When I've gone to him with research I've found, such as the work Enterolab has done, he was very interested in the information, & supportive of my decisions to go gluten-free even though I don't have "official" celiac. I do recommend him, & will continue going to him for my healthcare needs.

Good luck!
