Doctors In Nj

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has any experience with Dr. Richard Mones at Goreyb Children's Hospital in Morristown NJ. He was referrred to us. My son has tested strong positve for celiacs (twice) and has diabetes. Looking for an experienced doctor who has treated celiac patients.

Dr. Zalman Schrader and Dr. Lawrence Stein were also given to by VoteforBusho4 (thanks!) and they accept my insurance but I'd love to hear any personal comments on these doctors as well. I'd like to get it right the first time! Thanks!

I saw Dr Zalman Schrader about 4-5 years ago. I was loosing a lot of weight and had diarhea all the time. I felt so sick and someone referred me to him.

I really liked him and his bedside manner. I was referred to him by my allergy drs nurse. She thought I had Giardia because she had it and he diagnosed it.

When I went to see him....I was 89 lbs and feeling awful. He never mentioned celiac or gluten. He thought I had giardia and put me on Flagyl and took a stool test. The stool test was negative and I never felt better after taking the Flagyl. The problem has been ongoing for years. I moved out of NJ right after that so I never returned to him. I never had an endoscpoy by him either. Maybe if we did one then I would have a diagnosis now.

So, here I am back in NJ and I would probably go to him becasue I liked him but I decided to go to the Celiac experts and make the ride into NYC yesterday. I met with one of Dr Green's associates and she seemed pretty informed. Her name is Dr. Susie Lee. I am having an endoscopy on Fri but not sure how helpful it will be as I have been attempting gluten-free for the past 4 months. She suggested a Gluten challenge but there was no way I would eat gluten for 2 weeks........

Let's wait and see what friday brings. Either way, I am not going back to gluten but have to try to get better. I'll have to plan my next step after friday.

Good luck,

Sorry - a bt late on this. Dr. Richard MOnes is my son's gastroenterologist and he is WONDERFUL!!! He's fantastic with children and very knowledgable about Celiac Disease. My son is a puzzle because he had high blood tests on two occasions, but a negative biopsy. He took more blood and sent it to a lab in Buffalo that is more "sensitive" which came back negative. We're right now on the tail end of a year long trial diet. He has been so helpful trying to help figure out what is going on here and will not release us until he is 100% sure that we do not need him. I woudl recomend him to anyone :)

After talking with some people in this area, I made an appt. with Dr. Rosh at Goreyb Morristown Hospital (same group as Mones - so thanks for the feedback!) . My son's endoscopy is scheduled for this Friday. I also made an appt at Columbia Presbeterian with the Dr. Levy. I will likely get a second opinion from Dr. Levy. He seemed agreeable to reviewing our blood test results and the endoscopy slides. I had the opportunity to listen to Dr. Green and Dr. Levy at the celiac's conference recently. They were wonderful and I would encourage anyone who has the opportunity to learn from them to do so.
