Does anyone know of good doctors/specialists in Ontario, Canada?

Thanks

Marie

Hello Marie

If there is a specialist you woould need a refferal.

My family doctor is an aggreable man but not up on info. Another doctor in the clinic gave the reply I should start with adding a little wheat and gradually increase until can I tolerate it. I had told him I was gluten intolerant through elimination because I had not be diagnosed. What can you say when they only allow a few minutes each visit.

I suggest you make contact with the nearest Celiac suport chapter ei. Toronto, or London. Kitchener Waterloo has an e-mail kwceliac@sympatico.ca

I've two fantastic doctors in Southern Ontario - a GI, and an Internist. I hate doctors and these are two of the only ones I've loved. Let me know if you are in this area; I can give you their info, but you will need a referrel. I also see a fabulous neuro if you also need that.

Hi,

I am fairly new here and would like some help. I live in Northern Ontario and my family physician is trying to find a specialist who can see me. I am aware of the requirement of a referral and my doctor will do that. I wanted to take a proactive approach and assist in the search for a good doctor. I do not want to travel to southern Ontario, just to see a GI who does not know that much about celiac disease. I just had both endoscopies due to the pain I was having. They came out with a clean review and the doctor suggested I may not have celiac disease because it was diagnosed over 30 years ago.

Would the original poster or the previous poster be willing to share the names of the specialists you have seen and have been happy with?

I also would like to ask ... Is there a significant difference between a GI and an internist? I am assuming there obviously is, but which would it be better to see? Would one be more knowledgeable in the area of celiac disease? If I am having a lot of pain, mouth sores, joint pain, muscle pain, chronic fatigue, depression etc. and need some help, which doctor would be better to see?

Could I just see both?

Thanks!

Hi

I am from S. Ontario and was sent to see a specialist who refused to do th biopsey, how ever I did go off the gluten free diet and was positive of what I was dealing with. I had a rash every where except my face, I have I believe Celiac Herpiaformia. I wanted absolute proof until some one reminded me that travel ins. as well as life ins. will be refused me if I proseed and get documented proof. If you go on the strict diet for as little as maybe 2 weeks but preferably a month, you should be able to tell. This desease is one that developes serious problems and you are much better off staying off gluten and keeping your health. I have suffered needlessly when all I had to do was quit eating gluten for a while and then start again, I ate 3 slices of wheat bread toast and boy did I pay for it.

Now day there is great resourses on the internet= recipies packaged supplies ect.

Thank you

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. That is unfortunate that your doctor refused to help in the way you requested. I have been on the diet for over a month and am still having some trouble. I have already had the biopsy and know that I have celiac disease. I called around and was able to get in touch with a well recommended doctor, in the London area. The reason I was looking for a doctor in southern Ontario is due to the fact that the GI I seen a few months ago had suggested that I had grown out of the disease. So, he obviously does not know that much about celiac disease.

Hello Lorka150! I would love to hear about a doctor .... My doctor has not helped me at all. I live in the Mississauga area, and would drive up to 2 hours to see someone who knows what I'm going through, and how to help me. Can you please help me with this? you can reach me at LLMACNEIL@Rogers.com. Thank you in advance !

Hi Lorka,

Where are these two doctors located in Southern Ontario please? THanks. What's the wait time for the GI?

Nobody knows much about Celiac in Southern Ontario it seems! I am in Burlington. Luckily my GP, although she doesn't know much about Celiac was all over it when I was diagnosed. Even with only bloodwork she sent me to a dietician specializing in Celiac. That may actually be your best bet, to find a dietician that knows what is going on. The neurologist that I saw for the neuropathy had ordered a whack of autoimmune tests and the Celiac came up. He did not believe it. However, the dietician was absolutely sure of what it was. Her brother has celiac so she was really up to speed. If you want her name, email me at adab8 at hotmail dot com.

That post you are responding to is from 2007. Not sure if the poster is still around to respond.
