Corning/elmira Area Doctors

I accidentally found out I have a problem with gluten when I stopped eating gluten in June, it was a misunderstanding following an allergist appointment... but, long story short, I have had a tremendous turn around in my health (migraine free for five months, lost fifteen pounds, sleep through the night, and much much more). My current physician hasn't been much help, she just says keep up the good work, and I either have a wheat allergy, but most likely Celiac Disease, that's it... sigh... So, now that I'm relocating I thought it was a perfect time to find a Celaic friendly general practitioner, and to make it even more difficult, it would be really cool if it was a woman doctor.

Thanks for the help!

Hey...I wish I could help you. I go to school in Elmira, but I've never seen a GI there. I saw an endocrinologist who was pretty good, but that's all. I'd imagine that there are some GI docs up in Corning, in Elmira associated with Arnot Ogden Medical Center or maybe in Sayre, PA. Let me know if you've come up with anything!!

I was actually just diagnosed November 27th, by Dr. Weiner at Corning Guthrie Internal Medicine. I went in on my Thanksgiving Break from school, and found out the following week. When I went in, he was extremely concerned about finding a name for my problem, and after the blood tests came back, he diagnosed me with Celiacs. As I go to school in Pittsburgh, I had to wait a few weeks, and I have an appointment in Elmira next week for my endoscopy, so we will see how this works out. Since my insurance does not cover the cost of a nutritionist, I have been doing the majority of the research on my own. I would suggest calling Corning Guthrie, and Internal Medicine and ask who deals with Celiacs disease. I can suggest Dr. Malavat, a wonderful doctor, but he is male. I will let you know if I hear any more and it will be interesting to see who I will begin seeing as my PCP for this disease.

Hello Mel,

There is a great holistic medical doctor in Athens, PA (Sayre area). Her name is Dr. Barbara Harvey.

She is celiac herself and is a wonderful doctor of functional medicine. She is a real gem. Her office phone number is 570-888-8886.

I have known her for over 10 years.

I hope this helps you. Sincerely, Doris Doheny, Doctor of Chiropractic
