New Gp In Minnapolis Needed

I used to have a fantastic GP who was very knowledgeable about celiac. I changed jobs a few months ago, and now she's on the wrong side of the city, and I can't get up there easily. Does anyone know of a good GP in the downtown Minneapolis or southwest metro areas? I just need a doctor who won't give me the evil eye about my self-diagnosis of celiac and who can put up with and help me through all my strange and vague medical issues.

I'm interested in finding a good medical person in the area too. So please keep us informed if you see any of these doctors. So far I've determined that this board is better than the medical people I've dealt with and I'm a nurse!

I decided if I can't find one close to the Twin Cities area I'm heading to Rochester for an appointment at the Mayo Clinic. I will drive the distance for the care. My health is worth it.

Also, I was wondering if anyone knows of any good OBGYN's in the area who are familiar with Celiac's and any potential affects it might have on pregnancy? I am wanting to visit with someone and establish a good relationship before trying to get pregnant, and it would be helpful if they are familiar with the disease in general. Thanks!

I have a couple of suggestions in the Twin Cities. Dr. Karen Krenik is an internal medicine specialist in Edina--not sure of the group. She is very aware of the celiac disease.

I work at Allina Clinic in Champlin--I am an NP in family practice, and have DH, my daughter has celiac (7 yo). I work in Family Practice. We also have a pediatrician at our clinic who has DH--Andrea Spandl. Because 2 of our providers at the clinic are gluten free/celiac/DH, all of our providers are pretty aware of the disease. Dr. Catherine Reed, at Southlake Pediatrics, at Children's west is another pediatrician who has family connection to celiac disease and is especially sensitive.

hope this helps.

We have very good indication that both my husband and my son have celiac and we are about to go through the diagnosing process. I would like to start off with a GP that "gets it" as I have heard horror stories about getting the proper diagnosis. We are new to the area and have no idea where to start. I have read through many of the recommendations but they either don't take our insurance or aren't in the right area of town. I am looking in the Eden Praire/Minnetonka/Plymouth area. Recommendations are greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
