Ok - Anybody Out There From Oklahoma!

Recommended Posts

I don't live in Tulsa anymore, but I still work there part time. I also do a lot of my gluten free shopping at the wild oats store on 41st. I love that store.

My GI doc is in Tulsa. He is very knowledgable about celiac disease. He says that Tulsa is a hotbed for celiac disease. There are 2 of us in one small office, so I guess he is right.

Wild Oats is a neat store. I haven't been there but a couple of times so far. Hopefully when I get to feeling a little better I will be able to spend a little more time lokking at what they have to offer.

If you dont mind me asking, Who is your GI doctor? Right now I am pretty much dependent on my dietician for info. The GI that I went to for the scope, just did the scope and sent me back to my primary, who doesn't seem to know a whole lot. My dietician is doing some checking for me also, but I really think I should be working with a doctor that understands the disease a little bit better than my primary care doctor.

I was beginning to think I was alone on this site as far as any one being in Oklahoma. Surely there is more Oklahomans on this site than just us two. :D

Thanks for responding, talk to you soon.

My doctor is Dr. Nightengale. He doesn't spend so much time talking about the diet itself, he sent me to a nutritionist for that, but he does answer any specific questions I may have about the diet. He does all the blood tests for possible vitamin deficiencies, B12, folate,anemia, thyroid, liver enzymes, etc.

He immediately sent me for a dexa scan upon diagnosis which showed severe osteoporosis. He followed me every 3 mos. initially, now every 6 mos. with continuing monitoring of the previously mentioned blood work.

He is a Mayo trained doctor, and very smart. He also checked me for other GI diseases in addition to celiac and told me I have the markers for crohns disease as well.

I feel he has a real interest in the disease and is very thorough in his workups.

Thanks for the info. I may try to get in to see him. I have a wonderful dietician, but your doctor sounds just like what I'm looking for.

Thanks again,

Hey there! I'm in Tulsa and am recently gluten-free. I've been looking for some great restaurants I can eat at. I've found Outback, Carraba's, and Carrino's. Any else?

I was through Tulsa recently and was taken to a restaurant in Utica Square shopping center called The Polo Grill, and it turns out that the chef has developed a gluten free menu...ask for it; it comes in a separate menu...it was a slow time, in between lunch and dinner...the chef came out to meet me and said they even have a separate prep area in the kitchen for the gluten free dishes. He really sounded like he understood the business of cross contamination. And they aren't all salads.... The server was knowlegeable, too...she was able to say which items on the regular menu were gluten free and what their contents were.

There was a P.F. Changs in the same shopping center.

There are several places in Tulsa that at least understand gluten free. I have recently heard that Michael Fusco's Riverside Grill is a good place to go, because Michael, the chef/owner, has celiac disease. He has gluten free items on his menu. I have not eaten there myself, but another woman in my office has celiac, and she ate there and thought it was good.

The chalkboard will prepare a gluten free meal, but they require 3 - 4 days notice. The food is well worth the effort though.

There is another restaurant in Utica square, but I can't think of the name of it. I will try to find it and post later.

My GI doc says that Tulsa is a hotbed of celiac disease, and there are more restaurants catering to us popping up all the time.

Oh my, I ate lunch Thursday at Michael's Riverside Grill. It was fabulous. The majority of the menu is gluten free. I had lobster bisque and breaded fish and chips. They even serve a little cornbread muffin that is gluten free with the meal.

The menu denotes which items are gluten free and the servers are all very knowledgeable.

The dinner menu is also loaded with gluten free choices. I can highly recommend it. My husband and I just couldn't believe our eyes or taste buds. I am very sensitive and did not have any reaction at all.

It is pricey, but well worth it. We will be making this a regular for us.

Hello! I am traveling to Stillwater on Wednesday for business. Does anyone know where I can get a gluten-free meal near OSU? No biggie if not - I am only there one day.

Thanks! - April
